A Peek Into Van Gogh’s Life

Did you get a chance to catch 60 Minutes last night?

They had a very eye opening piece on Vincent van Gogh’s life…and death. For years, those studying his life have been taught that he committed suicide and now it looks as though we may have been wrong.

Regarded as one of today’s most famous artists, his masterful use of line, form, and color emphasizes the curves of organic shapes and the hard edges of the non-organic ones – combining in a harmony that is indescribable, yet distinctly Vincent van Gogh.
