I love Frida Kahlo, Salvador Dali, Leonardo Da Vinci, Picasso, and many others... but with Van Gogh there is a connection. Yeah... call me crazy. I love his paintings, but in his letters to Theo (his brother) I've discovered things that we have in common. Like this part:
From Vincent to Theo:There is also this:
"A phrase in your letter struck me: 'I wish I were far away from everything, I am the cause of all, and bring only sorrow to everybody; I alone have brought all this misery on myself and others.' These words struck me because that same feeling, exactly the same, neither more nor less, is also in my conscience..."
"... Wait, perhaps some day you will see that I too am an artist..."
He just blows me away!
And my favorite painting are The Starry Night, The Café Terrace at Night, Starry Night over the Rhone, and Room at Arles.
