    I've always loved the debate surrounding the quote "Art is never finished, only abandoned" supposedly by Leonard da Vinci. I personally like to reflect on the inevitability of people getting sick, passing away or losing interest in a creative passion. Artists being unable to progress in their craft from some unfortunate event or circumstance. Artists never recognized in their own era- etc.
    It makes me sad when I think of people like van Gogh because I wonder what they would think and how they would feel, to know that they were celebrated so lovingly.

    Imagine if Confucius couldve known his dream of bringing china back to its glory days actually came about and lasted for like 200 years. He spent his life trying to make his nation peaceful and happy, but died alone thinking he failed. He only got to experience making a difference for a short while til jealous rich corrupted figures framed him. What a sad fate...

    Pain can always be transformed into something divinely beautiful. Never give up hope. Life is only teaching you how to be at peace. Stay the course, and you will always find out
    Much love and peace to all 💕
    Vincent Van Gogh - Your pain must have been immense, a hug and love is sent out to that tragic day, and to anybody who finds themselves in such a situation right now. I have been there, we are never alone. People care
    Life can be very tough. This I know. Hope is the key

    Try watching this and not crying, just a little bit. I cannot. One of the most touching and well done scenes in the Dr. Who canon. This is why time travel fiction exists.

    Even though this one moment of joy, Vincent couldn't escape the pain and abuse. It's awful that despite all this he still took his own life.

    The sad thing is van Gogh was mocked as a painter but after his suicide people saw his life into a new perspective. May God guide the tormented.

      I believe it was later in life a mild form of schizophrenia developed in his poor mind, tormenting him and his already troubled life further, up until his death.
      From accounts of those that knew him, many described him as strange. But just as many said he was unspeakably kind and gentle.
      It's a sad fate to have happened to such a talented mind, but in the end his mental illness bested him and his efforts, leaving a treasured legacy and a turbulent past

      @Brayan Villegas You missed the point of the comment. Being kind and beautiful has nothing to do with a disturbed / troubled mind; and not in a bad way.

    • Brayan Villegas

      Darth Zeltroth no, watch DanPlan’s video on him, Van Gogh was truly one of the most beautiful and kindest people that ever lived. If i could go back in time i would go and have a conversation with him.

      Person driven by his very humanity to express himself through paintings of everything from peasants, potato farmers, chairs, sunflowers n starry night, only to have his paintings burned, used to block up a chicken coups, left in attics... then to top it off, was mocked and derided as an abject failure, a no good useless stain on society. Surprised he wound up being mentally unwell?
      Pop goes the weasel.

    Good thing The Doctor didn't bring him in a modern "art" museum. Poor Vincent might have given up painting altogether.

    • HuwTube

      On the contrary, he probably would've been intrigued. He was a revolutionary artist, and his work was radically different from anything seen before it. I think he'd have seen parallels, even if he was just fascinated at how far one could push the boundaries of art. Modern art has its place, and I think he, of all people, would realise that

      There is some brilliant writing in Dr who. Start like Rose, with Eccleston. You can always nip back to Baker and Sylvester. Forgive the filler episodes and become one with the time vortex. Bad Wolf.

    I love Bill Nighy's portrayal of the weird twitchy historian. His moment at the end where he's like "wait, Vincent... No, of course not. I shouldn't ask anyway, it would be impolite."

    • Ethan Quirk

      HeyitsTom if I remember correctly, Bill Nighy is actually a huge fan of Van Gough in real life, the words he spoke on him in this scene were his own

    To be honest, these sort of things are really quite sad.
    Beethoven composed such great music, but was hardly credited when he was alive. After his death, his work became so popular, and famous, he could not have imagined it during the time he was alive.
