Informacje o autorze
Vincent van Gogh

Born into an upper-middle-class family, Van Gogh drew as a child and was serious, quiet and thoughtful. As a young man he worked as an art dealer, often travelling, but became depressed after he was transferred to London. He turned to religion, and spent time as a Protestant missionary in southern Belgium. He drifted in ill health and solitude before taking up painting in 1881, having moved back home with his parents. His younger brother Theo supported him financially, and the two kept up a long correspondence by letter. His early works, mostly still lifes and depictions of peasant labourers, contain few signs of the vivid colour that distinguished his later work.

One may have a blazing hearth in one’s soul and yet no one ever comes to sit by it. Passersby see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on the way.

在靈魂一角可能有著一座燃燒著熾熱火焰的火爐,然而無人前來取暖;過客只是瞥見煙囪的一抹。

I want to do drawings which touch people, in figure or landscape I should wish to express not sentimental melancholy, but serious sorrow.

我想畫出觸動人心的素描,我想透過人物或風景所表達的,不是傷感的憂鬱,而是真摯的悲傷。
