"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

The representation of different periods of Van Gogh were very nice. They were made all the better with the audio descriptions of his life.

I stood in front of the paintings - from far - the up close on the side - the brush strokes jumping out at me. Then standing a brush away - - I wondered - what did he see? nothing holy or forever - what did vincent see?

I am not normally one to like art galleries, but when I came here I was very enthralled by the paintings that Van Gogh did. He has a unique way of portraying his views of what he saw into his paintings to make the viewer intrigued by where he was and why he painted the paintings. This has changed my view of painting.

My family and I enjoyed the Van Gogh up close exhibit. All his works tell a beautiful yet sometimes tragic story of his life.

Great exhibit! The exhibit designer could've first consulted a urologist however, the lack of a bathroom throughout the gallery caused a bit of an upset/ Vincent's few images depicting water didn't help. Great exhibit overall though!
