Vincent and Paul

The other night on the History Channel, yet another documentary about how the lives of Gauguin and Van Gogh crossed paths in the south of France. Vincent is portrayed as the needy and unbalanced artist. Paul is the egoist who portrays himself as Christ in some of his works.

Ultimately, their temperaments separate them.

Both men loved art first. Then, they taught themselves to be what they loved. And, as artists, they remained steadfast to their vision. Their lives are lessons—an open book for those who see the inner workings of the true artist. Take the best of what they had to offer and reconstitute it within your self.
