Not just a church.. Vincent explained to his brother Theo that he wanted this painting to express the fleeting nature of religion by the broken-down church tower. #VanGoghFacts

“'I've had a week of concentrated hard work in the wheatfields right out in the sun,'’ Vincent wrote to his brother Theo #OnThisDay in 1888.

Van Gogh discovered that he could use colours to express an emotion. He intensified the emotional charge of his works by combining colours to create harmony on the one hand, or contrast on the other. Which lead to this amazing #VanGoghSky.

Vincent and his contemporaries called artworks in the Japanese style japonaiseries. This print of a bridge in the rain is a good example. #VanGoghJapan

Farmhouses continued to fascinate Van Gogh. Four years later, in France, he returned to drawing and painting old houses. By that time, he used bright colours and loose brushwork. #VanGoghFacts

#VanGoghContemporaries Van Gogh asked whether Bernard and Gauguin would like to paint each other’s portrait in exchange for work by him. The two artists produced self-portraits instead, with a small likeness of the other man in the background.

Van Gogh was enthusiastic about the colours of the Mediterranean Sea: ‘..has a colour like mackerel, in other words, changing – you don’t always know if it’s green or purple – you don’t always know if it’s blue – because a second later, its changing reflection has taken on a pink or grey hue’.
