Head of a skeleton with a burning cigarette is an oil on canvas painted by Vincent Van Gogh between 1885-86 and preserved in Amsterdam at the Van Gogh Museum. In this work with a sarcastic accent, Van Gogh makes fun of drawing classes and their studies on anatomy in which the study of the human skeleton was at the base. The skull holds a lit cigarette between the teeth as if the subject was pervaded by a breath of life. The work is resolved with dense and precise brushstrokes whose main colors are the ocher yellow of the skeleton that fade to the black of the background. These nuances are unexceptionable in the artistic reproductions produced by Shopart. The print on canvas uses the fine art giclée technique, which uses eight pigment colors to guarantee deep, saturated colors with homogeneous shades and a long-lasting effect. The print on canvas of Skull with Cigarette can be enriched by applying the brush effect varnish made by the technicians of Shopart. This non-toxic and transparent paint, in addition to protecting the print, gives a finish similar to the paintings hand painted with raised brushstrokes visible to both eye and touch. The Skull file with Vincent Van Gogh's Cigarette is in very high resolution and allows posters printed on double matt paper 260gr high quality poster paper. In addition, the panel is available in print on mdf panel with a thickness of 2 cm.
