"Vincent Van Gogh" Metropolitan Museum of Art Tip by Tijavi

Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City: 194 reviews and 382 photos


Centuries later after Rembrandt, another Dutch painter made waves with his post-Impressionist, masterpieces - the great Vincent Van Gogh. He is as known for his paintings, as for his state of mind. Although it is a well-known fact that he committed suicide at such a young age of 37, I've recently read somewhere that the fatal gunshot was not self-inflicted, but rather came from someone else. Murder!?

I am a great Van Gogh fan, and it was such a delight to see many of his famous works at the Met. According to Wikipedia, Van Gogh's style is "notable for its rough beauty, emotional honesty, and bold color...." I couldn't agree more.
