Van Gogh and his skies⭐⭐⭐

“I dream my painting, and then I paint my dream”.

Café Terrace at Night – 1888

⭐ “At present I absolutely want to paint a starry sky. It often seems to me that night is still more richly coloured than the day; having hues of the most intense violets, blues and greens. If only you pay attention to it you will see that certain stars are lemon-yellow, others pink or a green, blue and forget-me-not brilliance. And without my expatiating on this theme it is obvious that putting little white dots on the blue-black is not enough to paint a starry sky.” ⭐
(Letter to his sister Wilhelmina – 1888)

⭐ “There is no blue without yellow and without orange, and if you put in blue, then you must put in yellow, and orange too, mustn’t you? Oh well, you will tell me that what I write to you are only banalities. “⭐
(Letter to French painter Émile Bernard – 1888)

  2. Per anni ho avuto una stampa proprio di quel quadro in camera! Ora l’ho tolta per mettere altro ma ce l’ho ancora… lo sento molto vicino al mio sentire! Credo fosse in questa casa fin dagli abitanti precedenti!
