From the mesmerizing “Starry Nights” to the beautiful inexplicable “Self-Portraits”,. Gogh has left a remarkable footprint on the artistic map of the entire world. Yes, Van Gogh paintings are iconic artwork that has been celebrated over time and again.
The master of the Post-Impressionist era, Gogh painted more than 900 fantastic paintings in his entire course of life. He lived a short life, but he painted for almost 10 years, from the age of 27 to 37. These paintings are themselves a benchmark and have redefined what real art is.
It’s evident that an artist like Van Gogh cannot be reborn but his painting style has been carried through generations. And to embrace his painting styles and a legacy that he left behind. Here is a compilation of some famous Van Gogh paintings for sale, their ideas, and the story behind them.
Regarded as one of history’s most valuable works of art, Starry Nights is an enchanting painting. The painting style is spectacular and the swirling sky holds a strong impression in the viewer’s mind to date.
The magic Van Gogh created with the brush strokes primarily involved shades of light and dark blue. These were illuminated with the subtle strokes of yellow that were coherent with stars and the moon in the night sky.
The final output showcases a vivid mixing of these shades; some areas appear to be green that reflect clouds at the horizon. While the sky’s luminance cannot be neglected at first glance, the bottom half of the canvas narrates a different story. The dark and cold city in the gloomy night with cypress in the foreground.
Wheatfield with Crows
A painting of his last times, Wheatfield with Crows is an intense narration that depicts a sense of loneliness and turbulence in his life. It seems to show a deep state of isolation where a path is ending in the middle of the field.
This path is going nowhere and is circled with crows, signifying a gloomy image in the viewer’s head. It is a paradoxical canvas by Gogh which represents nothing but the intensity of depression he faced during his ending period. The blue sky in the background and charismatic tones of red on the treetops reflect a subtle view of a picture-perfect landscape.
Vincent’s Wheatfield with Crows is anything but a suicide note expressed through a landscape. It also exhibits the life of a solitary individual and the restorative forces that he sees in a country.
Cafe Terrace on the Place du Forum
Van Gogh’s world-famous Cafe Terrace is an astounding piece of art painted by him in 1888. Being a night painting, it is unbelievable that this painting has been painted without the color black. The blue-colored houses tend to become darker as they move away from the viewer’s eyes.
The consolidated bright tones on the canvas seem as if the entire world is painted on the streets of a medieval city. The illuminated sky and starry background bathed the balcony of the cafe, making it a beautiful shining place. The creative output of the painting radiates beauty and positivity from every corner of its frame.
Talking about Vincent’s amazing artwork and not considering the everlasting beauty, Almond Blossoms will not do enough justice. Gogh was obsessively inspired by Japanese art and this one clearly depicts his fondness behind it. The blossoming and positivity-filled painting was specially painted by him at the time when his nephew (son of Theo) was born.
He used an unusual viewpoint for this composition as he has only painted trees before this painting. There is no horizon and land but only a soft blue sky resembling the calm and cool waters of a pond. The light blossoms are flickers of light reflection on the canvas.
The serene Autumn Landscape by Gogh is inspired by the Impressionist painting styles with only limited use of tones. The dramatic canvas of Gogh is a masterpiece, a playful reproduction in between. The playful brushstrokes and palettes of light amidst the changing seasons.
The color of the trees and the ground complement each other with shades of warm orange. The consolidated bright tones on the canvas seem as if the entire world is painted on the streets of a medieval city. The illuminated sky and starry background bathed the balcony of the cafe. The blue sky in the background and charismatic tones of red on the treetops reflect a subtle view of a picture-perfect landscape. The colour play is beyond amazing and it resonates with a deep knowledge of Gogh’s on-point colours.
