Great art explained. James Payne discusses 'The Starry Night'.

If you would like to know why I didn't include the theory about Vincent being murdered or killed by accident, here is a very good article which explains the reason - www.theartnewspaper.com/blog/...

I started "Great Art Explained" during lockdown. My aim is to make videos which focus on one great artwork. I want to present art in a jargon free, entertaining, clear and concise way with no gimmicks.

Vincent van Gogh was a largely self-taught artist who didn’t pick up a paintbrush until he was 30 years old.

Just seven years later, he would be dead.

It was really his last four years where he developed the style we would come to know him by, and these were also his most prolific years. Once he found his way, he was making up for lost time.

    Vincent did not kill himself. It is said that a young mentally disabled child was playing in the village where Vincent was painting and found a gun. He was playing with it when he shot Vincent in the stomach. Letters to his brother proves he was not on the cusp of suicide as well.
    Vincent also didn’t just cut off his ear. He and his roommate were seen screaming and fighting in the streets and his roommate pulled a knife on Vincent, cutting his ear.
    There’s a ton more info on this in Loving Vincent 2017

    Van Gogh would become an unintended theme in my life. It may partly have been the enigma of his story, but it surely stemmed in majority, from vision. This presentation of a merge of the two elements is the finest I personally have found in my lifetime.

    After having seen this wonderful video and read many of the comments below I’m in tears over how much love we all have for this remarkable man and his dedication and genuine character. What strike me the most is how powerful his paintings are, even after having been looking at them for the past 50 years of my life. They are still as fresh and vibrant now as they where the first time I saw them way way back in time! From having read many of the comments I understand that I’m sharing that complete awe for his paintings with so many others and that is a very moving experience for me. That reinforces my belief that art can have a pivotal impact in our lives. Something that can forever change us and make us grow. For me, Vincent was a prophet. Through his humble humanity he showed us a world of light and vision. Just like all great spiritual teachers he emerged around the age 30 and displayed a journey that contained so much human suffering, determination, steadfastness, vision, love and compassion. What makes him so great is that the world still love him and his message so long after his death. For me, his art contains and conveys a sense of universal longing for something beyond the brutal reality of this world. His art manages to bring a sense of hope that a beautiful world can be found within and without. For that I’m eternally grateful. Thank you Vincent!

    Since I was a kid, I've always had a profound connection to van Gogh's paintings, stemming from the first time I saw starry night. I'm not a very artsy person, lol, even if I enjoy looking at art but I feel like your videos help me understand what I like so much about my favourite paintings in an easy to understand (and non-pretentious) way. Also it's so tragic how the story of van Gogh's life got morphed, probably due in part to the stigmatisation of mental illness till today. I'm glad he was looked after and encouraged to thrive till his last days. The fact that his art was keeping him alive just adds so much more meaning to his paintings for me.

I vividly remember seeing the "image" for the 1st time and being completely memorized as if I was suddenly hypnotized and transported to a time and place I knew nothing of yet it felt so familiar and tranquil. I always compare the feeling of love at first sight to the feeling I had when I saw that painting.

    The Doctor: "I just wondered...between you and me, In 100 words...where do you think Van Gogh rates in the history of art?"
    Dr. Black: "Well...big question. But to me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly, the most popular great painter of all time. The most beloved. His command of colour, the most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world...no one had ever done it before. Perhaps no one ever will again. To my mind, that strange wild man who roamed the fields of Provence, was not only the world's greatest artist, but also one of the greatest men who ever lived."

    Just think how many great painters, and all other artists, we’d have if there was equal wealth worldwide! God (and I) despise capitalists who think it’s right to give all the money to a few rich people and leave the rest to starve to death! Only letting the few rich people own everything and pay tiny wages is insane slavery, obviously! And the wage is the cause of world poverty and wars! God’s whole purpose is to destroy wage systems worldwide because it’s oppression. Isaiah 14:24-27. (Assyrians were oppressors so it means all oppression on the “WHOLE EARTH” and that’s HIS WHOLE PURPOSE so anyone who doesn’t think that’ll ever happen is lying to himself.)

    I just don't understand people commenting below how they "don't really care about art." It's not just that I can't relate to it, but it literally makes no sense. Everything you consume in your life, everything you see and touch, is art. So saying you "don't care about art" tells me you don't care about ANYTHING, and I have a hard time believing that.

    It's sad how the most tragic parts of Van Gogh's life (his mental illness, his poverty, his suicide) are both the most heavily romanticised and the most unnecessary to his success.

      Thanks for the comment but recent evidence including a drawing by the doctor in attendance tells us it was the entire ear. Good article here - www.theartnewspaper.com/blog/did-van-gogh-cut-off-his-ear-or-was-it-only-part-of-the-ear

    Brilliant insights into a 'well known' painter. Honestly the best art videos you can find.

    I never knew that the large black thing on the left of the painting was supposed to be a cypress tree. I always thought it was a mountain or a tower.

    Van Gogh art has never been easy for me to look at … his choice of color, subjects & layouts have always left me cold.

    Has any astronomer been able to identify these stars? The direction of the view? Or approximate date of the sky

    Correction: forensic investigation indicates that Vincent did not shoot himself, but was shot by a drunken acquaintance and local annoyance who suddenly left the area after the shooting.
