At about the time he created this self-portrait, Vincent had a really bad day.  Following a quarrel with his friend and guest, Paul Gauguin, he cut off a portion of his left ear. 

This painting (produced in Arles during November-December, 1888) depicts how Vincent appeared during that time of his life.  It is now part of a private collection.
