The truth is photography hasn’t been around that long. Paintings were/are both a way to document history and tell stories. Before movies and TV there were just paintings. Due to the invention of photography paintings went on to show things sometimes photography could not. Go ahead and post any painting you like, new or old.

I think Van Gogh stuff has to bee seen in person. The application of thick paint is truely unique. Technically, not the most accomplished painter (reason why he struggled), but the big draw is how unique his application of paint in his images are.

He cakes the paint on the canvas, and you can even easily see it with images.

He painted 800 paintings mostly in the last two years of his life, troubled and maybe deranged, he is whatever you want to interpret him as. Maybe a genius, a mad man......probably both! But a lot of people get inspired by him, he also maybe the most famous painter in the world? I’ve never seen any of his work in the flesh, but I would like to.
