Very nice song and art, it's been some time since I heard it.
Summer before last I was at the Chicago museum of art and they had one of VanGogh's smaller, more famous self portraits where he has a straw hat with
a beard, anyways it was the 2nd time I've seen it there and they had it crammed in a corner, where people had to crowd in close to see it, but I guess
I understand now why.
His work seems so flat on video and photograph, but in person it glows and writhes with energy, it's a creepy effect. View up close on pieces like his
smaller self portraits and the brushstrokes are amazing and there is a depth. I can not stress enough how much seeing art like this in person makes a
huge difference, I really need to visit more museums!
The 2 pieces I love most by vincent are the Potato Eaters, and his wooden chair with odd perspective. His heavy fluid and surreal linework with very
fresh colors has always had an influence on my own art. I consider him one of the greatest artists in oils ever.
Thanks for posting this OP!
