Van Gogh’s art is iconic, but did you know that during his lifetime it wasn’t appreciated? He has come to represent an entire genre of ” misunderstood genius” artists in our culture. The immersive exhibit exploring the mind and work Van Gogh takes visitors through some interesting facts about him — like how he got access into museums despite not being able-bodied or having any formal training as a painter.
Vincent had a natural gift for painting and it showed in his work. He produced up to three masterpieces each day, with the help of an almost machine-like speed that allowed him to create intricate images using quick brushstrokes.
Vincent’s paintings became more introspective and emotional as he lost himself in the loneliness of nature. He gave his landscapes a sense of longing that is difficult not to feel after viewing them.
Wheatfield with Crows is one of the last paintings van Gogh completed. The work depicts yellow wheat fields contrasted by tumultuous skies and moody sunsets in which he delighted, as you can tell from this quote: “The great thing about painting my Wheat Fields series was that it made me feel so free.”
The day after his return from the fields, Vincent was found crying in pain and saying that he had shot himself. He died two days later without ever recovering consciousness or revealing what happened during those last couple of moments spent alive.
Vincent Van Gogh’s life is a fascinating and mysterious story. His paintings are now among the most expensive in the world, and his life has been chronicled by biographers who were captivated not only with how ahead of his time Vincent’s work was but also because they felt he reflected their own lives.
