"In arranging my new apartment I see your paintings again with so much pleasure.... There's such a note of truth, of real countryside in each one."
Letter to van Gogh from his brother Theo, Paris, March 16, 1889
"I've looked most attentively at your works since we parted; first at your brother's and then at the Independents exhibition. I offer you my sincere compliments, and for many artists you are the most remarkable in the exhibition. With things from nature you are the only one there who thinks."
Letter to van Gogh from artist Paul Gauguin, Paris, March 20, 1890

Excellent exhibit as far as the works themselves and the number of works--not too few and not so many as to overwhelm. The greatest drawback was the audio guide. The curators told us what we were seeing. They didn't permit us to see for ourselves. Half the fun is the looking. Often their fanciful commentary distorted our own vision. The readings from the letters, though, were an excellent touch, providing valuable context in the voice of the artist himself. Next time, though, facilitate looking and perhaps even encourage conversation among visitors.

The exhibit was a great reflection of Van Gogh's life. We enjoyed all the paintings and the audio helped with insight of Van Gogh's mind. Thank you.

It was a little overkill with all the Van Gogh. They couldn't have included some Picasso?

I loved it. i was amazed that was only a little bit of his work. the colors and the way he painted was so different. i was very amazed on how much his work has changed in such a little time as well.

I loved looking at all the different paintings! It as surreal to see how he was able to make people look closer and examine the most simplest of things. What a wonderful exhibit!

I thought the exzibit was refreshing, but it was sad to hear how he died and that the world was robbed of someone who saw the world so differently. I was blessed to see how vibrantly and passionately he saw the world around him and expressed that view of the eyes of his heart thought his paintings
