Inside the painting we explore Van Gogh’s use of colour and light to express feelings, and his choice of a chair to represent him as a kind of self-portrait. We learn about the techniques Van Gogh used in his paintings, and his placement within the artistic world at the time of the painting and beyond.

In a mixture of live action, animation and elements of the painting itself, the episode brings the painting to life and ends by encouraging viewers to choose an object that would represent them best in a self-portrait.

This clip is from the BBC series Your Paintings; an adventure inside some of the most exciting paintings held in British collections today
