Not many at all is going to tell you how it was and how it is,... of the life of Vincent van Gogh and of his predecessor Rembrandt van Rijn and of their unknown Fine Works of Art of this MFA world,...... including a couple of works from R.J.M.
Vincent van Gogh around 8 or 9, in 1862 about the time that he had painted this portrait painting of his sister Anna below. Vincent also did a drawing of a farmyard scene with a horse on its verso dated Sept 62.
Anna, his sister was 7 years old when Vincent painted her in 1862 and he was nine. Yeah,.. I know,..... they say Vincent never picked up a brush until he was an old man of 27 years old,... but that is to hear the MFA experts say it. Isn't it strange that most books on his early life contradicts what the art experts would like you to believe?
Vincent around 12 - 13 when he was thinking very seriously of working for and becoming an art dealer for his uncle Cent, while getting out of the unwelcome residence where the rest of his siblings and father and mother resided. As most of you are unable to see for yourselves,... Vincent was now a grown up young man, and still wearing too small of a suit jacket for his age and body size, but some do realize how ignorant his parents really were,... when reading letters about their oldest son's Vincent. He was considered him as one large pain in their whole families well being, and just wanted him to get out there and do something useful in his life.
Vincent around 17 - 19
A good friend and Artist Rick Friesen's wall-plack sculpture of Vincent's face in my collection.
Vincent's brother Theo around 33
Vincent father studying his sundays sermon while his son Vincent decided to paint him.
You can almost see Vincent's face in the ankle of his father's foot, if you look close enough.
This little area has been in my dreams since I was a child as I remember it.
Well,... for peat sakes, just look at that,... there's that little monkey is, and he is on the same kind of a looking chain that is around Titus's neck, in the younger painted portrait of him above.
http://vanrijngo.bravejournal.com/entry/24806 Rembrandt's painting of Tobias.
Rembrandt's "The Night Watch" painted in 1642, compared to a 1632 painting that's in Warsaw, and considered to be from an unknown 17th century artist, who at the time painted in a Rubenistic style. I say, to heck with all of you MFA experts, for you all are just as the ones Vincent van Gogh and Rembrandt van Rijn had known, the ones around in their own time,..... blind ass donkey eared MFA experts, ones who can't see you know what-tee! Butt they seem to be good followers.
Can any of you imagine an artist such as Rembrandt, with his own extraordinary power to hide in his paintings the absolute main theme, and what the paintings represent, without anyone able to actually see what he had painted and intended for them to see? Just to give you an example of what was said, look for Judas kissing Jesus on his cheek in the above two pictures as he is holding on to Jesus' back hair and neck line, while the red robe is actually part of Judas' dress.
I wonder what Rembrandt meant when showing those two well respected men in a house of prostitution while the little child molester is getting his drink refurbished by the house manager leaning through the door way. You know how artists felt about these Dutch art experts, and their giant oysters, while usually their minds are in the clouds of smoke, and also the smoke they pull over the rest eyes, and knew then that the supposed experts were not ones to be messed with. Well, I myself, vanrijngo,... don't really give a shit, for I'm here to mess with the whole MFA world.
I want everyone of you supposed experts to imagine in this drawing of mine, this cute little monkey sitting on the arm of this chair, and watching the monkey business going on right before his and your eyes. Once you see this,... you will not see anything, butt this, for this is what was granted to Rembrandt by you know who for him giving up his soul for a life of magic. If only Vincent would have came to this understanding and conclusion,... he might not have suffered as much as he had and wouldn't have been so tormented by his brother, all of his colleagues, and all the rest of the supposed MFA experts.
This was one of my greatest purchases ever on eBay. I bought this painting as being described as a old painted portrait of a fisherman on wood panel.
