Throwback Thursday: Starry Starry Night
Originally, ” Starry Starry Night” was posted in 2014 on Vincent van Gogh’s birthday.
Vincent moved to Arles in 1888, where his work grew brighter in color and developed his unique painting style. In his life, he only sold one painting. Theo, his brother, had given him financial and emotional support through his life. Yet, Vincent considered himself to be rich. “In my opinion, I am often rich — not in money, but (though it doesn’t happen every day) rich — because I have found in my work something which I can devote myself to heart and soul, and which inspires me and gives a meaning to life.”
In ten years, Vincent produced more than 2,100 paintings and drawings, plus 900 letters (600 letter to his brother, Theo).
“I put my heart and soul into my work, and I have lost my mind in the process.”
— Vincent van Gogh
