Am I really going to talk about a painter who is already super renown? Yeah, sorry. But I have a really really really soft spot for Vincent van Gogh, and pretty much anyone with a similar story. Do you know his story? It's sad, dude.
Everyone is familiar with this painting. Not everyone is familiar with the fact that he painted it at an asylum. Following a psychotic episode that resulted in the mutilation of his left ear, he voluntarily admitted himself. He painted the view from the window of his cell at least 21 times. The painting has been praised for its color use, composition, the bold strokes of the brush, signature of Van Gogh. But what makes this painting so remarkable is much less superficial.
