Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890)
Head of a Skeleton with a Burning Cigarette
January-February 1886
oil on canvas, 32.3 x 24.8 cm
Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam (Vincent van Gogh Foundation)

 This skeleton with a lit cigarette in its mouth is a juvenile joke. Van Gogh painted it in early 1886, while studying at the art academy in Antwerp. The painting shows that he had a good command of anatomy. Drawing skeletons was a standard exercise at the academy, but painting them was not part of the curriculum. He must have made this painting at some other time, between or after his lessons.
