Van Gogh – (Integration and parallels)

Vincent Van Gogh - Van Gogh's Chair - 1888 - 93 x 73 cm - oil on canvas

I must continue with other compositional aspects in this masterpiece by Van Gogh.   How he used line and colour, integrating the left front leg of the chair with the door is wonderful, and can you feel the floor connecting with the diagonal in the seat?   And how the pipe is in parallel harmony as well?

The vertical feel of the painting is emphasised with vertical brushstrokes in the wall and door, ensuring harmony with the  chair.

Van Gogh’s masterful integration with colour, the yellow on the door and the blue notes in the chair, is magnifiscent.

His place in art is highly deserved.
