"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

Happy Birthday, van Gogh

van Gogh, Pine Trees and Dandelions in the Garden of Saint-Paul Hospital, 1890

Always continue walking a lot and loving nature, for that’s the real way to learn to understand art better and better. Painters understand nature and love it, and teach us to see.

Vincent van Gogh, born on this day in 1853, from a letter to Theo van Gogh, January 1874
