Quote by Vincent van Gogh
Two paintings of Vincent van Gogh with chairs have been on our top hit list for a long time: the Van Gogh Chair and his Gaugin Style Chair.
Now I’ve found out there are more through this quote:
I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process
Via Joost Geurtsen.
In one of my early posts about chair paintings I featured the Van Gogh Chair. The image ranks number 1 in a search engines and creates some traffic here.
The Gaugin style chair by Van Gogh featured here is a result from the close collaboration both painters had during several years. Van Gogh wanted to demonstrate he was able to paint in the style of Gaugin.
It belongs to the Amsterdam Van Gogh Museum.
Van Gogh Chair
I did a “chair paintings” search and found this Vincent Van Gogh chair from the National Gallery.
