The Story Behind the Art

The story behind the art: Did you know that Vincent Van Gogh's famous oil painting "The Starry Night" depicts the view from the author's room in the Saint-Rémi-de-Provence hospice just before sunrise? Van Gogh is said to have voluntarily committed himself after cutting off his own ear. He was not allowed to do his canvases inside this room, but he had charcoal and paper where he made his sketches, and in another room he cleaned up and did his art on canvas. The artist, who suffered from depression and psychotic episodes, was considered a milestone in the art world, being studied and admired even years after his death. Every work has a story behind it!
