Vincent

The other day, I watched an intriguing special on Vincent Van Gogh. Before watching this I knew the basic story of his life, but I never knew the actual details of his life and tragic death. I’m fascinated by the fact that someone so talented, and ultimately “brilliant,” could not see or understand his own genius. One of my favorite works by Van Gogh, Red Vineyards, I learned, was the only work sold during his lifetime. Okay, now maybe it’s the hormones or something, but I was reaching for the tissues after hearing that the last words he ever spoke were, “The sadness will last forever.”
Gotta love PBS specials!
