Vincent van Gogh's masterpieces are always inspirational. he had a mind of his own and i respect him for that. :)

Hi Elwin, he was unique!

Shionge said...

Cool, any idea what's the current price for this now ;)

Nikon said...

Hello Shionge, lol, no idea on the price! You may need to get a weekend job if you really want it :-)

Shionge said...

Yo Paul, I appreciate art in any form but to pay for one my pocket is not deep enough even if I have multi jobs :)

Eel Wind said...

well. not many people appreciate his talent while he was still alive...

Nikon said...

Yes, Elwin, I don't think that he sold any paintings while he was alive!

The roofs of Paris fascinated me during my first trip to that magical city, and they still do. Another good choice to highlight an important part of Paris.

This painting "Roofs In Paris" could possibly be from the roof of the house at 54, rue Lepic in Montmartre where Vincent lived with his brother Theo. It was 1886 when they moved there. Because they were now living together, there was no need for letters and so we know little about this period of Vincent's life. Rue Lepic is a very lively street where one can meet the happy average French person enjoying their neighborhood. Yves Montand sang a song of the friendly Rue Lepic:
