"In arranging my new apartment I see your paintings again with so much pleasure.... There's such a note of truth, of real countryside in each one."
Letter to van Gogh from his brother Theo, Paris, March 16, 1889
"I've looked most attentively at your works since we parted; first at your brother's and then at the Independents exhibition. I offer you my sincere compliments, and for many artists you are the most remarkable in the exhibition. With things from nature you are the only one there who thinks."
Letter to van Gogh from artist Paul Gauguin, Paris, March 20, 1890

Loved the Van Gogh. Saw things I had never viewed before. On the way to lunch at Granite Hill, we stopped by the Zoe Strauss exhibet of photographs. There should be a sign advising parents of young children about the subject matter.

I loved the exhibit very much!! I want to be an artist just like Van Gogh, so this tour thing really gave me some advice as to drawing and painting. I would 100% come again to see the exhibit. It is worth seeing a lot!!!!!!

It was all really cool. I liked all the flower paintings because they were all really nice and pretty. When I grow up I want to be an artist just likeVan Gogh. It was all really cool and I liked the fact that we got to listen to it all and not have to read it all THIS WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
