Van Gogh's Hidden Picture

Vincent van Gogh , 1887
from the Kroller-Muller Museum
Did you see this? They have recently found another painting underneath van Gogh's PATCH OF GRASS. It seems that van Gogh made a habit of recycling canvases. Makes you wonder what's under Starry Night, eh? I wonder what made them look? I just think this whole thing is terribly interesting. The fact that they can actually use modern technology to peek through the layers & the years to see what van Gogh was doing..feeling..and where he was at in his creative process....FASCINATING!

  1. Ted, this is a great site! I love your enthusiasm about art and I bet the kids pick up on that enthusiasm and it makes them excited to come to class. I look forward to seeing the artwork throughout the year.
