About The Artwork
van Gogh painted this while at the mental asylum in Saint-Rémi, as the work depicts two peasants having a little siesta; perhaps it served as a perfect representation of the period that van Gogh was in his life. A moment to slow down, to focus on nothing but yourself and your well-being. The lovely painting, which today hangs in Museé d'Orsay in Paris, serves as a reminder to sometimes slow down, take a moment to reflect, and relax.
Vincent van Gogh
There are few artists in history whose name comes with so many stories and legends like Vincent van Gogh.
However, the career of the legendary impressionist artist was not always an obvious and clear path; he had many different jobs, such as an art dealer and a preacher, until he eventually decided to dedicate his life to his art.
Never truly recognised for his importance during his lifetime, Van Gogh still always had one supporter in his corner, and that would be his brother Theo van Gogh; he was the one financing Vincent van Gogh’s career and living expenses.
If the saying ‘’Tortured Genuis’’ was a person, it would be Vincent van Gogh. He spent time in mental hospitals and institutions for his struggling mental health and eventually took his own life. However, one must never forget that through his struggling times, Van Gogh created some of the most stunning paintings the world has ever seen, and his works will forever bring joy to those getting the pleasure to explore them.
