Halloween

Even on halloween I had to find art that has an All Hallow's Eve feeling, and the most famous work that I could find was "Skull of a Skeleton by Vincent Van Gogh."  Van Gogh is one of the world's most famous artists.  He didn't start painting until later in life, and then painted for 10 years (most of which was in an insane asylum) and then he commited suicide.  At the time he only sold one painting and now his artwork is some of the most expensive in the world.

1886
Vincent Van Gogh
 
Happy Halloween!!!

  11. That is a very detailed skeleton. This took a lot of skill to create. I am sure the artist has been painting for many years.

  30. I love Van Gogh's work. I find it hard to believe that he only sold one piece of his artwork and now they're so popular. I can't imagine how he must've felt, spending 10 years creating so much pieces and only selling one. That alone would make me give up and quite, it's a miracle he kept going.
