"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

In the past, I have had difficulty connecting to van Gogh's work, but in person you cannot be unaffected. Thank you for bringing him so thoroughly to Philadelphia.

I'm so awed by van Gogh's work. I wish I could have brought my family because I know they would have loved this just as much as I did.

Truly inspiring exhibit before an NBA playoff game. Big thanks to the man Van Gogh. Thanks for all of the contributions bro!

Wonderful exhibit. And the narrated guide was fine except I think it could be argued that the man and woman in the "regimented" woods could be viewed as walking in the same direction, not passing by in opposite directions without saying a word.
jAt least, less depressing to think so...
