How ‘Blue’ paint colors came to be in Van Gogh paintings
A painting that once appeared to depict a blue sky and a blue lake, has now become a symbol of hope for many who suffer from mental illness.
The painting “Van Gogh’s Blue Sky” was part of the collection of Van Goeges paintings in a museum in Amsterdam in 1999.
The painting is one of a collection that was valued at up to a million euros at the time.
It was made of blue paint.
The Dutch government had ordered the painting destroyed.
Van Goeghe paintings are painted in blue to make them more appealing to the eye.
They also help the artist to avoid eye strain and headaches.
Van gogh painted “Vangogh’s blue sky” on a blue canvas in the 1960s.
It was one of two Van Goaghes works that were destroyed in the 1980s.
The work became a symbol for mental illness in the Netherlands.
Van GOgh’s daughter, Bernadette, who was also a painter, has described the painting as one of her “favorite” works.
“It’s a beautiful painting and I think that I always had it because I saw myself in it,” she told the Associated Press.
Vangooghe is believed to have been diagnosed with schizophrenia at age 14.
VanGOgh, who died in 1972, had a number of close friends and associates, including fellow artist Hans Joachim Klee and Dutch sculptor Bertolt Brecht.
He died of an accidental overdose in 1980 at age 48.
