Portrait de l'artiste sans barbe was one of many self portraits by Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh. Though Van Gogh created many self portraits, this was an uncommon one, for the artist portrayed himself without beard, whereas in many other self portraits he has painted himself as a bearded man. All the self portraits of the artist were executed in Saint-Remy showing the artist's head from the left, i.e. the side with ear not mutilated.
