THE REAL VAN GOGH… THE ARTIST AND HIS LETTERS.
Marilyn and I really did enjoy our visit to The Royal Academy of Arts in Piccadilly on Thursday last for their Van Gogh Exhibition, and despite the huge crowds, it was a wonderful experience. Vincent Van Gogh is one of the greatest figures in Western art. Revered for his bold, expressive paintings, he is also admired as a prodigious and eloquent letter writer. His corrospondence displays a remarkable literary gift and an ability to communicate his ideas and feelings about nature, art and life in direct, emotive language.
