Van Gogh's Skull of a Skeleton with Burning Cigarette is one of his early works. The small & undated painting is part of the permanent collection of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. It was probably painted in the winter of 1885–86 as a humorous comment on conservative academic practices – before painting live human models, the academic routine would have included studies of skeletons, to develop an understanding of human anatomy – an assumption based on the fact that Van Gogh was in Antwerp time, attending classes at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, classes he would later say were boring and taught him nothing.
