"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

I wanted so much more info about the artist's psychological state - as the work devolved into the crazy brushwork etc. Didn't that relate to his declining health?

Awesome sauce. Nice lighting, but whoever writes the summaries on the walls needs to be a little less indulgent, it defers the meaning of what they're actually saying. Van Gogh is beast though.

Once upon a time I ate a piece of cheese and it tasted good. The art inspired me to go eat some cheese.
