“Look at the sky. It’s not dark and black and without character. The black is, in fact deep blue. And over there: lighter blue and blowing through the blues and blackness the winds swirling through the air and then shining, burning, bursting through: the stars! And you see how they roar their light. Everywhere we look, the complex magic of nature blazes before our eyes.”

"Well. Um, big question, um, but to me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all.

Certainly the most popular great painter of all time.

The most beloved.

His command of color - the most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty.

Pain is easy to portray - but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world…. no one had ever done it before.

Perhaps no one ever will again.

To my mind, that strange wild man who roamed the fields of Provence, was not only the world’s greatest artist - but also one of the greatest men who ever lived.”
