How I fell in love with Van Gogh
"One may have a blazing hearth in one's soul and yet no one ever came to sit by it. Passers-by see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on their way..." - Vincent Van Gogh We all know and love the iconic paintings of the Dutch Post-Impressionist painter, Vincent Van Gogh. He was ahead of his time in so many ways - his use of color and form is timeless, but he produced his brilliance during an era that didn't embrace it. Van Gogh died without fame as an artist.
