Sad but very true words...
bit oh so brilliant....nice bio in few words....
And we are the lucky!
Vincent - what a talent and what a legacy of art work - good words
he certainly suffered, poor man
Tinged with absinthe -- very perceptive.
and from his insanity, came such sweet serenity for the rest of the world. only those that suffer most can reveal to us, the others, what real beauty should be. :-)
A mad genius for sure. I loved your take on the prompt, writing of the artist that painted the piece. Nicely done.
Spinning pain into beauty...very good one!
"We, the beneficiaries". Yes indeed!
What a sad, tortured life. 'At Eternity's Gate' is so despairing - poor man.
His genius was certainly unbridled. And yes, we are the beneficiaries.
I am heartened that so many love his work. Gosh, he suffered, though.Terrific magpie.
dangerous stuff! amazing work though. I couldn't believe all the paintings just of wheat fields!
Helen,For all the sufferings,self imposed mostly we could only lament that he was great. Yes!
Well caught bio of a great artists.
If a picture paints a thousand words.....and you've managed it, my lady, in so few. This is a very solemn but appreciated tribute, Helen.
Oh wow I love this and superb title
Thank god, we benefit.
A beautifully succinct bio...
How sad that last painting is.
i would have loved to have been there!i'm intrigued by the green fairy, i hear she is back...
Dearest Helen,On our numerous trips on KLM, Royal Dutch Airlines we had a courtesy card and got to stay in the Van Gogh room at Schiphol (Amsterdam) airport in-between flights. That was a treat and his work was well present. Too bad that he only got famous post-mortum!Lots of love,Mariette
How nice that you included his self portrait...
A true genius and like so many others, troubled and destined to end his own life.
You have caught the complexities of this man beautifully.
Yes, you captured his tortured soul so beautifully~
green fairy indeed- great piece here!
