The Trinquetoille Bridge, 1888. In The Trinquetoille Bridge, Van Gogh has created a striking divergence in the picture plane between the strong vertical seen through the figures hurrying alongside the river, to the horizontally painted water. This in itself creates ambiguity between the direction the actual flow of the water should be taking, and that implied by his strongly horizontal short brushstrokes. The vivid colouring adds to the surreal and strange effect this painting produces.Private collection. #lovingvincent#vincentvangogh#vincentvangoghlove#lovingvincent
Is the night black? And are the stars white?⭐ Vincent didn’t think so! He wrote to his sister Willemien: 📝‘If you look carefully you’ll see that some stars are lemony, others have a pink, green, forget-me-not blue glow. And without labouring the point, it’s clear that to paint a starry sky it’s not nearly enough to put white spots on blue-black’. #VanGoghIlluminates#DailyArt#VincentvanGogh#VanGoghMuseum #Amsterdam

q: What are you looking forward to this week?
-- I'm done with exams for this year haha, & I honestly couldn't be more relieved. It's just so so much stress temporarily being taken away, & I'm so looking forward to Christmas & to finally being able to actually relax again. (I'm pretty sure I said this already haha, but school's frickin exhausting, so yeah 🙆🏻♀️)
Portrait of Marie Ginoux, painted by Vincent van Gogh in February 1890, on show at Van Gogh's Inner Circle at Noordbrabants Museum in Den Bosch until January 12.
Madame Ginoux is depicted as a typical Arlésienne in the traditional dress of the southern French town of Arles. In Arles, Vincent rented a room from her and her husband in their Café de la Gare for a number of months. Also Van Gogh’s well know painting The Night Café was made here.
The exhibition illustrates that Van Gogh wasn’t just a lonesome and solitary man, despite what many think, but in fact a passionate and incredibly driven individual who had many warm, intense and long-standing friendships. Don’t you think this loving and intimate portrait is a great example of that?
