Another thing that I noticed was that most of his famous paintings are actually in the major galleries around the world, including the MOMA and the d’Orsay (I would love to see Starry Night, but I doubt I will ever make it to New York to do so). They succeed in enlivening the aesthetic emotion when contemplating Van Gogh’s very dazzling and unforgettable works.

In Paris, van Gogh studied with Cormon, inevitably met Pissarro, Monet, and Gauguin, and began to lighten his very dark palette and to paint in the short brushstrokes of the Impressionists. This, you might say, is the paradox of persistence: We admire those who persist in the face of struggle when they have genuine talent; but when they do not, the spectacle becomes almost pathetic.Others in history have felt the same way and have gazed upon the same skies in awe and wonder, and that reminder alone will comfort me for a lifetime. Through these letters, Van Gogh expresses in detail his perspective of contemporary and past renowned painters and their works. Với van Gogh, nhân vật trong tranh chẳng cần là ngài bá tước, cô công chúa, hay những điển tích Thánh kinh nào hết, mà chỉ đơn giản là nông phu đào khoai, chở than, là người đưa thư, là cây hạnh trổ bông trắng ngần, là cây bách dưới bầu trời sao.

The date 1908 proposed in The posthumous fate of Vincent van Gogh 1890–1970, by John Rewald, (first published in Museumjournaal, August–September 1970), John Rewald Studies in Post-Impressionism, p. As one of the greatest victims of the phenomenon that Walter Benjamin explores in his The work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction, one could expect to see posters of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, or his Room, or Starry Night, in a third of the rooms of students. Still, it was Jo’s desire for the world to see the beauty of Vincent’s art that has resulted in his works hanging in museums right around the world. The only two periods when the public is relatively uninformed are the Parisian period, during which they shared an apartment and had no need to correspond, and a one-year gap in the correspondence from 1879 to 1880, when they had temporarily fallen out over Vincent's career choice.Van Gogh talks about his work in his letters, plans his work and sends Theo little drawings of them.
