Some people in this world are doomed to suffer more difficulties than others, especially for Vincent van Gogh. Maybe the word “difficulties” is not the proper one to exhaust all the unfairness, indignity, poverty, indifference, loneliness he experienced during his 37-year short life, while all adversities didn’t prevent him creating large numbers of marvelous art pieces with the most famous one as “The Starry Night” and ” Vase with Fourteen Sunflowers”. Eventually I got a chance to see the “Sunflowers” exhibited in the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam.
I’m not an artist, thus I don’t want to pretend how I was deeply impressed by the color, layout, skills, style and all other the elements he poured into the drawing far beyond his times.
