Writings by Vincent Van Gogh
Letter to Theo - on solidarity and the color of the sky1883
One must not look at color by itself, but in conjunction with the color of the sky! That sky is grey - but so iridescent that even our pure white would be unable to render the light and shimmer.
Van Gogh and Gauguin to Emile Bernard1888
We’re in the presence of an unspoiled creature with the instincts of a wild beast. With Gauguin, blood and sex have the edge over ambition.
