Description of the picture :

Bedroom in Arles – Van Gogh (three options). 1888-1889. Oil on canvas

   Cozy, tiny bedroom of the artist. Nothing superfluous, all the most necessary. The author boldly interprets the rules of perspective, and uses colors freely, giving preference to his own vision of the meaning of all paint. The obvious desire of the master to show his understanding of home comfort and his own economy.

   The plot of the work was formed by itself, the artist was often sick and at that time practically did not leave his bedroom, taking a doctor here.

   A feature of the work is the fact that the author on it depicts several of her own works hanging on the wall. A bitter sense of unrecognition and misunderstanding on the part of society is seen in this creative technique. Yellow and blue colors, which in the works of the master personify comfort, positive and warmth, are used in abundance in the picture. It is known that the artist performed three options, preserving the composition, but changing the color ratio, depending on the mood. The master performed one option for his brother, the second for his mother and sister at their request. It was these people who were fans of the artist’s talent in life.

   All works are now decorated with expositions of respectable museums, being the undoubted pride of institutions and the object of attraction of auctioneers and collectors.
