A brown interpretation of the famed Van Gogh's Chair in the National Gallery in London. This series of original art is an exploration of colour using Van Gogh's painting as the subject matter. The Great Vincent copied works of the masters he admired, which he called interpretations. Wall art for sale that gives opportunity to enjoy a high quality interpretation of the Master's work.
I once saw a very bad reproduction of Van Gogh's Chair, utilizing incorrect colours and poor cropping which cut off the edges of the painting. This poor reproduction was the inspiration for Van Gogh's Chair In All The Wrong Colours.
Van Gogh did not sign his works with his family name. As u can see in my interpretation, as the original in London, his signature reads as Vincent in the upper left side, on the plant box. There are a few different theories as to why The Great Vincent chose to do this. The simplest explanation is that the correct Dutch pronunciation of Van Gogh is very different from both the French and English butchering of his name. As a result, Vincent chose to use his common and much easier to pronounce given name, as he was living in France thought his working life.
Another theory was put forth by the actor Leonard Nimoy (Mr Spock) in his one man play Vincent. This play was about the relationship between Vincent and his brother, Theo. In the play Nimoy correctly points out that their father Theodorus Van Gogh did not approve of Vincent in any manner, regardless of Vincent's attempt to gain his father's affection. The relationship of Vincent to his father was strained to the point of estrangement. As a result of the rejection Vincent felt disassociated from his father, and he did not want to have his father's name appear on his work.
My signature appears on the front of the work and my Certificate of Authenticity is included.
Please note: The frame is warped as one of the bottom corners protrudes from the wall. An art framing store may be able to compensate for this. The work is discounted for this reason - $300 CAD.Van Gogh's Chair In Brown
