Download Vincent van Gogh’s Collection of 500 Japanese Prints, Which Inspired Him to Create “the Art of the Future”

Vincent van Gogh never went to Japan, but he did spend quite a bit of time in Arles, which he considered the Japan of France. What made him think of the place that way had to do entirely with aesthetics. The Netherlands-born painter had moved to Paris in 1886, but two years later he set off for the south of France in hopes of finding real-life equivalents of the "clearness of the atmosphere and the gay colour effects" of Japanese prints. These days, we've all seen at least a few examples of tha...

Van Gogh’s ‘Sunflowers’ Get A Rest, And Restoration, Break

On Friday, the Van Gogh Musem “announced the painting has been taken off the wall for research and restoration, months after scientists found the artist’s choice of a light-sensitive yellow paint was causing the flowers’ petals and stems to turn brown.” – The Independent (UK)

Borbay’s 2018 — A True Banger For The Books

2018, you sly fox. While all-up in you, I traveled the world, took two trips to Vegas, painted like mad, was Artist-in-Residence at Teton Springs, golfed 100 rounds, played lots of hockey, auctioneer-ed a charity event; and even officiated my first wedding! With record sales, amazing collectors, great friends and a loving family at my …

Once World Capital Of Oil-Painting Copies, Chinese Town Tries Move Into Original Art

A decade ago, the Shenzen suburb of Dafen produced three-quarters of the world’s supply of oil reproductions of famous paintings such as Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. “[But] what was once pejoratively described as something akin to a citadel of copycats is now trying to rebrand itself as an incubator of original art,” albeit with limited success so far. — Hyperallergic

Happy Thanksgiving—Images Of My Walk Through Manhattan

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone living in the U.S. and Happy Thursday to those of you living somewhere else in the world. As has become my tradition I’m visiting family in New York for the holidays and as usual we spent yesterday walking through Manhattan with me stopping to take pictures along the way. We had another overcast day and a cold one at that, but we walked the fifty of so blocks from Penn Station to The Metropolitan Museum of Art and then through Central Park before grabbing a b...

Why Are Movie-Makers So In Love With Van Gogh?

He has been anointed—and travestied—as the ideal of the modern artist, even by those for whom art, modern or otherwise, is at best a diversion and at worst a scam. Everybody knows about the cutting of his ear, or cracks cruel jokes about it. His name is as famous as that of Picasso, but Picasso has been mythologized as a monster of control, whereas van Gogh, it is agreed, lay at the mercy of the uncontrollable.

Julian Schnabel Interviewed on Van Gogh Film in New York Magazine

Julian Schnabel is interviewed in New York Magazine this week, as he prepares to roll out his new film on Vincent Van Gogh, and offers his takes on the artist’s singular personality. “I don’t think he was crazy at all, and these myths that have been propagated are a disservice,” he says. “[People] think artists have to […]

Julian Schnabel Says Everything We Think We Know About Van Gogh Is Wrong

Schnabel, who has a new “course correction” movie (not a biopic, or something) about Van Gogh: “I didn’t think he was failed artist. He was doing exactly what he wanted to do, and success is not measured by sales or money. The reward is making the work, not other people agreeing with you.”

How The 19th Century Japanese Artist Hokusai Influenced His Dutch Contemporary

Van Gogh admired Katsushika Hokusai and studied prints of The Great Wave Off Kanagawa. Did it influence Starry Night? From a visual standpoint, that seems probable: “The similarities between the thrust of the wave and the swirling of the sky; that they are both striking studies in blue; and the fact that Van Gogh admired The Great Wave so much all point to a loose inspiration.”

Watch Willem Dafoe Become Vincent Van Gogh in Julian Schnabel’s New Film, At Eternity’s Gate

We know Julian Schnabel for working in two forms: painting and film. His work in both has more connection than it might at first seem, since most of his films are about art, or at least about artists. After making it big in the art world himself in the late 1970s and 1980s with his signature large-scale canvasses incorporating a wide variety of materials, he got behind the camera in 1996 to direct Basquiat, a biopic on the eponymous graffiti-artist-turned-painter. In the 2000s he followe...

Van Gogh’s Nightmare In A French Asylum Revealed

The artist was judged by his brother and friends to be unfit to live alone after he mutilated himself, cutting off his ear and presenting it, wrapped in paper, to a young woman in a local brothel, following the collapse of a proposed artistic partnership with Paul Gauguin.

Van Gogh’s Drawing Of ‘Starry Night’, Looted In World War II, Is Still Being Held In Russia

Investigative reporter Martin Bailey: “Vincent had made the drawing in 1889 in the asylum of Saint-Paul-de-Mausole to send to Theo in Paris, to give his brother an idea of his painting … The drawing done for Theo had been donated to the Kunsthalle Bremen in 1918, but it was lost during the chaos of the Second World War. It was seized at a German castle by Victor Baldin, a Red Army officer who took it back to the Soviet Union on a tractor. For decades it remained hidden away and was recorded in t...

Yet art book publishers and museum curators often feel obliged to show you the same...

Van Gogh’s Art Now Adorns Vans Shoes

While museums remain free for the most part in Europe and still so popular that they are loved better than luxury brands (according to this one article), funding is not what it used to be. As you might have seen with our posts on Hieronymus Bosch on (Dr. Marten’s) Boots, wearable classic art is kind of a thing now. The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam announced a series of limited-edition Vans (Van Gogh, Vans shoes, get it?!) featuring patterns based on his paintings: "Skull" (1887), "Almond Blosso...

Nearly 1,000 Paintings & Drawings by Vincent van Gogh Now Digitized and Put Online: View/Download the Collection

Every artist explores dimensions of space and place, orienting themselves and their works in the world, and orienting their audiences. Then there are artists like Vincent van Gogh, who make space and place a primary subject. In his early paintings of peasant homes and fields, his figures’ muscular shoulders and hands interact with sturdy walls and gnarled trees. Later country scenes—whether curling and delicate, like Wheatfield with a Reaper, or heavy and ominous, like Wheatfield with Crows (bo...

The Science Behind How We Feel About Art

About two dozen labs in the U.S. are studying “experimental aesthetics” – why we like what we like, and why we make art at all. “The mysteries of the aesthetic response, and the creative impulse, have become a burgeoning area of inquiry for scientific researchers across many disciplines. They hope quantifiable data and statistical analysis can help explain matters that some consider ineffable — like why we paint or sing, or why we naturally favor Van Gogh’s sunflowers over the landscapes we enco...

Van Gogh

Dutch painter, Vincent Van Gogh. Vinnie didn't really cut his entire ear off. He sliced part of his lower, left earlobe off, which is basically a shaving accident. On the website, Heni Talks, there is a nice little lecture by art historian, Frances Fowle, about Van Gogh's paintings of olive trees. Check it out at Heni Talks dot com.

Van Gogh Sunflowers Show Signs of Light Damage

The Guardian spotlights efforts to save Van Gogh’s sunflowers after X-Ray imaging showed the flowers’ light-sensitive paint was withering and fading. “It is very difficult to say how long it would take for the change to be obvious and it would depend a lot on the external factors,” said Frederik Vanmeert, a materials science expert at […]

The Yellow In Van Gogh's 'Sunflowers' Is Fading To Olive-Brown

"A laborious x-ray scan of the painting's canvas has discovered that Vincent van Gogh used two different types of a chrome yellow paint, one of which is more liable to degrade under light. The change in the 1889 painting, one of a series of sunflowers by Van Gogh, is so far not visible to the […]

Petit Palais

I went to see an exhibit at the very beautiful Petit Palais here in Paris, les Hollandais à Paris, about artists from the Netherlands who came to Paris through the years to paint and be part of the art going on there. Some I had heard of, Van Gogh of course, others were new to me. It was very enjoyable. No photos were allowed. The poster for the exhibit. The painting it shows is by Van Gogh painted from his brother’s apartment in Paris in Montmartre. There was also a very interesting one of win...

Here are three outfit ideas, each inspired by an iconic painting from one of the great Impressionist masters. Vincent Van ...
