Vincent Van Gogh, Self Portrait, 1889, oil on canvas. Van Gogh's painting career is known for the regularly painted self-portraits throughout his life. They are thought of as a view into the psychological composition of the artist. Visconti has formulated palettes of color that accurately reflect the technique and emotion of each of Van Gogh's paintings. Through meticulous and painstaking choice of color and palette mix, each Visconti pen is unique and has emerged to represent a specific Van Gogh painting.
The name of the painting and artist are delicately engraved around the pen's ring, and each pen is packed into a unique gift box that is complemented with a faithfully reproduced canvas of the painting. The pen itself utilizes Visconti's eighteen-faceted design, the many edges enhancing the vivid colors of the pen. As always, each pen may be personalized using Visconti's patented 'My Pen System,' and Visconti has employed their popular magnetic closure system. Each pen is available in fountain, rollerball, ballpen and Eco-Roller. For the fountain pen, the finely engraved steel nib is available in fine, medium and broad point.
