Neoprimitive Tragedy: Vincent Van Gogh

~ CLICK on portrait of portrait of doctor Paul Gachet, who took care of the artist in his final years ~

This painting sold at a record price of $75 million in 1990, making it the most expensive painting in the world at the time





Vincent Van Gogh sold only a handful of paintings - including Red Vineyard at Arles - in his lifetime.


This is in spite of having his work shown in the successful gallery of his brother, Theo, and being close friends with another artist, Paul Gaugin, who saw considerable success in his lifetime.





Vincent Van Gogh began his career as a preacher in Borinage, France, but their evangelical committee declared that he was unfit to be a pastor.


Rejected after much sacrifice and hard work, Van Gogh then turned his attention to art.

NOTE the Survival of the Fattest album (below) is intended to be obnoxious and kinda offensive--as it is punk rock music from Southern California. And that if you are offended by it, you are missing the point.

 

The album cover and title is not to criticize any individual overweight person, but to point out that as an overall society we do need to stop consuming so much.

 

Also note that "Fat Wreck Chords" (the name of the label) ALSO suggests that whoever has the "Fattest" beats and the "Wreck-y-est Chords" will ultimately win out in the evolutionary race.
