    When I first looked at this painting, I thought to myself, 'It's boring. It's boring to look at. Why paint a picture of an empty bedroom?' However, once I started looking at all the elements, my mind changed. Van Gogh's use of line really gives depth and character to the piece. The first line that caught my eye was the line outlining the bottom of the bed. The strong stroke really gives you a sense of distance between the bottom of the frame and the floor. Had it been a thin line like those to ...

    Vincent Van Gogh was and still is, a well know artist, but did people really know him? Did they have any idea what was going on in his brain? From the looks of his final self-portrait, I think not. This painting was completed just months before his suicide, while he was living in Avers, a hospital which treated patents, like Van Gogh, for mental illnesses. From my point of view, I feel that Van Gogh's intent was to show his strong emotions. He obviously wanted to show his strong effort of will d...
