I’m not a particularly arty or art-aware person, but this has to be one of my favourite paintings. It is a painting of the bank of the Rhone river in Arles, where Van Gogh was living at the time, and I just think it looks so beautifully peaceful. I love the night’s sky. Then the other day, I came across this quote below by a Persian poet, and it reminded of this painting.
“Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, “You owe me.” Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky.”
