This morning the class met to visit the Van Gogh museum located in the museum district. This area has spectacular architecture and various art museums. The tour guide, Jeroen, was very informative as he lead us through Van Gogh’s art career lasting only around ten years. The tour did not spend much time looking at all of the numerous works, but focused specifically on different time periods throughout Van Gogh’s career.
As a former art major, I absolutely loved seeing original pieces. His pieces are iconic and breathtaking in person, not necessarily from a technical level, but emotional.
A picture is worth a thousand words, but seeing the original is priceless.
