For those who went to the Van Gogh museum tonight, what were your second impressions? What struck you about the museum this time? Did you view the art in a different light? Did you feel like your perspective was affected by the workshops and events we have attended since we began the course?
I felt more sober and somber as I looked at the paintings this time around. Perhaps it was because I am tired, but something changed. I was able to look upon the Bedroom, for example, with fresher eyes. I felt more connected to the art, and I also felt like I understood Van Gogh’s perspective a bit better.
Pascal’s perspective on the paintings was interesting to hear as well. I’ll be interested to hear what you guys have to say, if you see this.
