An 1887 oil on canvas painting, Portrait of Père Tanguy, by Vincent van Gogh (1853-90), the Dutch post-impressionist artist. Painted in Paris. "Père" Tanguy (1825-1894) was a great friend of the impressionists. He owned an art supplies shop in Montmartre, accepting paintings as payment for materials. Vincent painted Tanguy three times. In the background of this version are several Japanese prints, an art form which was very popular and influential in Europe in this period. (Rodin Museum, Paris)
