Every Christmas season I look forward to receiving in the mail my catalog from The Museum Shop of The Art Institute of Chicago. The Museum is one of my most favorite places in the world because it is home to one of the largest collections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art. I saw my first Lautrec and Degas there and some of the Monet haystacks, I was blown away.
This is the Vincent I choose to remember....strong, determined, devoted to his art. But yet of course the sadness runs as a quiet undercurrent.
