Sunshine Table



Sunflowers by Vincent van Gogh, National Gallery, London.

This painting was done near the end of van Gogh's life. It is full of vibrancy and heavy brush strokes in his dynamic style. There is a museum in Amsterdam devoted only to him as he has become the most famous of the second generation of Impressionist artists.

We had a print of this in my childhood home. I didn't realize it was a Van Gogh until I had my second art history class in college. I love it.

Good to meet you at the Blogger meetup tonight. Hope to see you there again.

No Reproduction can possibly convey the power of this painting.
I saw it once at the Museum in London, didn't know what it was at first; but then it dawned on me and it was overwhelming. The only thought I could have was "truly he was a master". Amazing how powerful a vase of sunflowers can be.
