    Vincent Van Gogh, "A Pair of Shoes" (1886) When I look at this painting it makes me wonder about all the places that these shoes have been. Article in Harper's Weekly - "We should start with the facts now established as to the origins of this painting. In 1886, van Gogh visited a Paris flea market and came across a pair of worn-out shoes. He bought them and brought them back to his atelier in the city’s Montmartre district. It’s not clear why he bought them, but it could be simply that he needed a new pair of shoes. Apparently, he did try to wear them and found the fit impossible. Instead, he decided to use them as a prop for painting, and the shoes soon became the most celebrated footwear in the history of modern art. But that may be less the direct result of van Gogh’s painting than of its critical reception by eminent writers."

That it includes a scythe and rake makes it one of only two orchards that allude to human presence or labor. The motif and Van Gogh's stylized treatment are related to Japanese prints #spring

Vincent van Gogh was a famous Dutch painter who was born in Nuenen. People from all over the world knows his name and paintings like 'the Sunflowers' or 'the Potato-eaters'. A famous story about Van Gogh is about his ear: he cut it off.

Van Gogh 1889."Cypresses" was painted in late June 1889, shortly after Van Gogh began his yearlong voluntary stay as a patient in the asylum in Saint-Rémy. The subject, which he found "as beautiful of line and proportion as an Egyptian obelisk," both captivated and challenged the artist: "It is a splash of black in a sunny landscape, but it is one of the most interesting black notes, and the most difficult to hit off exactly that I can imagine."
