"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

Beautiful. Somehow the rain one is my favorite. He decided that he would not be bound and would not paint the uglinesss.

I thought his use of color was ingenious; the light he brings to his paintings through different variations of color is stunning. Very great show and lovely to see his work so close and in such an intimate setting.
