For me, Wheat Fields With Crows is the ultimate Van Gogh painting.
By a couple of local artists: Anne Elizabeth's skyearth, and this multimedia piece by Pam Paulsrud and her daughter, Cori. Both purchased at benefit auctions.
And my Whistler: Jo's Bent Head. I love this one so much. It was a stretch to buy it, but I'm so glad I did!
I am really not sure I 'get' his paintings; I am not sure I have sufficient artistic taste or knowledge for that. But his brushwork, his colors and his subject matter have always appealed to me. I think his tortured life comes through in his painting and it somehow resonates with me.
At age 40 I had to have an Anita Rodriguez.
At age 50 I went to an auction and acquired two more.
See my profile for one of the latter two.
As for Van Gogh, Vincente Minnelli's "Lust for Life" with Kirk Douglas turned Van Gogh from enjoyable to thrilling.
and damn if i've forgotten the name of the work already.
and yeah, of course it's better off where so many others can see it,
but every time we go to an exhibit, we eah pick one we'd steal.
