Self-portrait without beard is an 1889 oil on canvas painting by the post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh. The picture, which may have been Van Gogh’s last self-portrait, was painted in September that year. The self-portrait is one of the most expensive paintings of all time, selling for $71.5 million in 1998 in New York City. At the time, it was the third (or an inflation-adjusted fourth) most expensive painting ever sold. Source [WikiPedia]

Background Story behind “Self Portrait Without Beard”
Van Gogh’s last self-portrait, “Self Portrait Without Beard”, was a birthday gift for his mother
Van Gogh was prolific at making self-portraits. He is known to have painted himself over 43 times between the years 1886 and 1889. “Self Portrait Without Beard”, as the name suggests, is one of the most distinguishing ones of all because he does not sport a beard in this one. It is also highly cherished owing to the fact that it was Van Gogh’s last self-portrait, which he gave to his mother as a birthday gift.
