A TRIBUTE TO VAN GOGH

ABOVE A POPPY FIELD

 

Our tribute to Vincent van Gogh—on the anniversary of his death, July 29, 1890—focuses on the moving Field of Poppies, created while he lived at the mental asylum of Saint Remy from May, 1889 to May, 1890.

 

Normality is a paved road: it’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.
