2021 Calendar Vincent Van Gogh
Vincent van Gogh is often considered a tragic figure, yet he created works of genius. Shimmering with intense light and color, his paintings rejected the naturalism of impressionism. Instead, Van Gogh preferred bold, intense colors that conveyed emotion. He worked feverishly and created more than two thousand paintings, drawings, and sketches in his last ten years. Only one of these sold in his lifetime, but he was certain the world would one day appreciate his art.
This calendar’s twelve paintings survey the range of his work in landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and flower studies. Each is paired with a passage from Van Gogh’s letters.
