This simple still life of a pot of chives has a decorative pattern in the background. It is unclear exactly what Van Gogh was painting – maybe wallpaper or part of an Oriental carpet.

What do you think the pattern in the background is?

#VanGoghFacts This townscape is one of the few ambitious drawings Van Gogh produced in Paris. He mostly worked in oil paint on canvas during his time there, to develop a brighter, more modern palette. http://bit.ly/GateinParis

In Paris Van Gogh got acquainted with Monticelli’s artworks. He admired the French painter, and in this Self-Portrait he tried to apply his use of color and light effects.

Which book inspires you?
Vincent greatly admired the books by Stowe, Dickens and Hugo, and often quoted their work.

#VanGoghStories The young Vincent proposed to three women: Caroline Haanebeek in 1872, Eugénie Loyer in 1873 and Kee Vos-Stricker in 1881. All three turned him down. Why? Read the story: http://bit.ly/HisLoves

In his student days Van Gogh was often game for a joke. This curious drawing he probably made in the atelier of his teacher Cormon, in Paris. http://ow.ly/XEzS3082RU5

Today is #WorldReligionDay Up until he was 27 years old, the Christian faith played a major role in Vincent’s life. As the years passed, Van Gogh became increasingly detached from the traditional Christian faith. The church and the bible no longer ruled his life, but religion still continued to play a role – also in his art. http://bit.ly/LookingforaDirection

Unfinished? Daubigny often left parts of paintings unfinished. In so doing, he inspired a new generation of artists, the Impressionists. Taking their cue from Daubigny, they drew less of a distinction between an ‘unfinished’ and a ‘finished’ painting.
Just a bit more than two weeks left to visit the exhibition #Daubigny, Monet and Van Gogh. Don’t miss it! http://bit.ly/Daubigny-Monet-VanGogh

#ParisianPrints James Pitcairn-Knowles made a very subtle colour woodcut called 'The Bath'. In an earlier trial proof (left) you can see that the use of a darker pigment for the key block produced a considerably harder result. Which one do you prefer?

“My studio’s quite tolerable, mainly because I’ve pinned a set of Japanese prints on the walls that I find very diverting.” Wrote Vincent to Theo from Antwerp in 1885. He bought his first stack of Japanese woodcuts in Antwerp. Read the full story about his Japanese inspiration at http://bit.ly/InspirationJapan
