An appreciation of great painting
The Red Wineyard (Vincent van Gogh)
Did you know that Vincent sold a few paintings during his lifetime? This painting: The Red Wineyard was sold!
The atmosphere, the extraordinary colour, the movements of the working people in the field are somehow bounded by one flow smoothly passing from one to the other. Added to it is the easy flowing knee deep stream, the silvery sun, the yellow sky....each and every loose items in the painting combined resulted into one whole, and that, leads the spectators to an unseen world of simple joy and happiness never to be found anywhere. Only a great artist can reach to that highest point of dreamy imagination not forgetting the reality!
