In Self Portrait with Glass, 1887, he is smoking a pipe. It appears to be an army mount Peterson.

Ash,
That can be arranged. Pm me, I'll give you the my address where you can send your ear. Left one of course.
Then we will go from there.

There is a joke in there about it gurgling so much it drove him mad but I won't make it.

The pipe was probably drilled a bit off centre too, hence the gurgling! :rofl:

Well, he certainly made a good impression. (See, impression, like Impressionists, like impressionistic painting? Would have worked better if not for his being one of the Post Impressionists. Ah, well, it's late...)

Rodo, so your post was about a post involving a post depicting a post impressionist?

Ser Jacopo made a series of pipes based on those appearing in the paintings of Van Gogh.

Check them out here - http://www.serjacopo.com/Jacopo/Pic_Home.html

I wonder what the guys smoked in them ... from what I read on his life he was quite a nut job. It may be due to funny stuff in his pipes and drink (absinthe back in those days was made by infusing real worm wood).

Mike, send me your Peterson and I'll send you a Dunhill that gurgles.
I kid Ash, I kid. My two Petersons are excellent smokers, but you know what they say about low laying fruit.
