Historically, I’ve not been a fan of Van Gogh. My dad loves him, though, so I’ve been exposed to his paintings and they’ve since grown on me.

There’s no particular reason for my dislike, except, maybe, that when we went to Amsterdam when I was fourteenish, I got dragged us to the Van Gogh Museum (where my dad wanted to go) rather than the Anne Frank House (where I wanted to go). I was a drama queen of a teenager, and so that might have been more than enough to hold something of a grudge. 🙂

Anyway, here are a few interesting things that have popped up in the news recently…

Street Scene in Montmartre – a painting not seen in public since Van Gogh painted it in 1887 – has been unveiled

600 Drones were used to recreate some of Van Gogh’s paintings and win a Guinness World Record

Two different Van Gogh exhibits in NYC are apparently causing a bit of confusion…

And, of course, a bonus…

The Man in the Painter’s Room is a graphic novel which takes a look at the last year of Van Gogh’s life. The article indicates the book isn’t available until April 14th, but it’s live on both BarnesandNoble.com and Amazon.
