VINCENT VAN GOGH PAINTINGS
Among November of 1881 and July of 1890, Vincent van Gogh painted almost 900 paintings. Since his death, he has turn into one of the most famous painters in the world. Van Gogh’s paintings have taken the minds and hearts of millions of art lovers.
In December of 1881, at the age of 28 just as he started his earliest paintings Vincent wrote to his brother Theo about becoming a painter,
“Theo, I am so very pleased with my paintbox, and I think me receiving it now, after having drawn almost entirely for at least a year, better than if I had started with it immediately… For, Theo! With painting, my real career starts. Don't you think I am right to consider it so?”
Van Gogh worked at a excited pace costing him money, causing him mental and physical stress and leaving him no time for any other source of income. But he stayed persistent. In a letter from March of 1882, Van Gogh wrote another time to his brother Theo,
“Even though I find myself in financial difficulties, I still have the feeling that there is nothing more solid than a `handicraft' in the literal sense of working with one's hands. If you turn out to be a painter, one of the things that would amazement you is that painting and everything associated with it is quite hard work in physical terms. Leaving aside the mental effort, the hard thought, it demands significant physical effort, and that day after day.”
In the same letter to Theo from 1882, Van Gogh writes,
“There are two ways of thinking about painting, how not to do it and how to do it: how to do it - with much drawing and little colour; how not to do it - with much colour and little drawing."
