Analysing Van Gogh

I was interested to read this article from the NY Times (via Art History News) as I had used this painting for an exercise in the chapter on Impressionism and Post Impressionism.  He originally painted the walls violet and in his early paintings he had used a perspective grid as a guide.

At one time I would have said I didn’t like his work but I have a better understanding of Van Gogh’s work than I did before I started this module.
