Impressed with Van Gogh’s art? Here are 6 easiest Van Gogh paintings to recreate.
A few days ago we talked about 10 easiest famous paintings to recreate for beginners. I don’t know about you but I was very shocked when I saw no more than 5 different names of artists on the list. The painting that is said to be the easiest famous painting to recreate for beginners was the “The Cliff, Etretat, Sunset” by Claude Monet. Besides that one, there is also ‘’San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk’’ and ‘’Bridge over a Pond of Water Lillies’’ by the same artist.
Besides Claude Monet, there are also Gustav Klimt, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Edvard Munch, but the most surprising fact is that, among the top 5 easiest famous paintings to recreate for beginners, besides ‘’The Cliff, Etretat, Sunset’’, all others are created by Vincent Van Gogh.
And who was he? If you ask anyone, even a toddler, he would say that he was a painter that cut off his ear. And you would be right. Van Gogh was a specific person who would be called insane if he would live among us nowadays and he would probably be living in some institution specialized for this kind of madness. Besides that information, I believe that everyone else knows about his famous painting ‘’Sunflowers’’ that is also one of the 10 easiest famous paintings to recreate for beginners and also one of 6 easiest Van Gogh paintings to recreate.
But, I believe that this is the only things that the majority of people know about him. I think that none of them even knows why he cut off his ear. But to get to that, we would need to go far to the past and in the Van Gogh’s youth. Unfortunately, that would take too much time away so we will reschedule that for some other time. However, if you have some free time on your hands, it might be interesting for you to read the book about the Van Gogh or, at least, his biography that can be found online.
Anyway, doctors couldn’t reattach his ear since there has too much time passed before people realized what happened. He cut his ear at night and both him and ear were taken to the hospital the next morning.
Again, I lost the track and went another way. Nevertheless, we will get to his life some other time. Now, here is the list of 6 easiest Van Gogh paintings to recreate.
