….because I’ve walked the earth for 30 years—to leave a certain souvenir in the form of drawings or paintings in gratitude. Not done to please some movement, but in which an honest feeling is expressed.

Vincent van Gogh, letter to his brother Theo, August 7, 1883

Probably few artists have walked the distances of Vincent van Gogh, whether through the streets of Paris, where he created The Shoes below in 1887, or over the fields of the French and Dutch countryside.  Always searching for the next subject or scene to immortalize in paint for a grateful posterity 125 years after his death (see also July 27, 28, 29, and 30 blogs dedicated to Vincent.)
