I went to the Van Gogh exhibit at the Houston Museum of Fine Art and, of course, came home with a book. This is absolutely on brand for me!

I‘ve not taken the protective cover off and the hotel room is dark so it‘s not the best picture. The book is very pretty. There were others I would have liked to have acquired but I have a budget that I‘m trying to stick with!

Not quite reading related but I thought you guys would appreciate the Atelier des Lumieres Van Gogh immersive exhibition! Animations of his paintings projected all over this old warehouse, i felt like I was inside the starry night. Matt and I have been saying we‘re gonna go stargazing for about four years and I‘m counting this as finally going

Soubhiville Wow, how cool! 7mo

No book reading today, but got to visit the Van Gogh exhibit at the Houston Fine Arts Museum.

hjreviews If you decide you do want to read a book on him, I found Vincent and Theo to be really good! 8mo
Maggie_Reads @hjreviews I saw that book on display in the gift shop. It looked interesting but I didn‘t buy it there because I‘m sure I could find it less expensive elsewhere. 8mo

ElizaMarie I don‘t know how to tag a book but.... you‘d love Van Gogh‘s Letters edited by H. Anna Suh, it‘s beautiful 9mo
Butterflyamore @ElizaMarie I have Van Gogh‘s Letters but thank you! 9mo
ElizaMarie @Butterflyamore You might be the person I saw post about this book? I couldn‘t remember what Litsy pal posted about it and that got me to buy it since I love Van Gogh 9mo
Butterflyamore @ElizaMarie I‘m not sure. I think I did post about it a while ago. You might also enjoy Vincent and Theo: The Van Gogh Brothers by Deborah Heiligman. I don‘t know how to tag books here either. 🤷‍♀️ Also, if you haven‘t seen it, Loving Vincent is a beautiful movie. It‘s animated with all of his artwork brought to life! 9mo
ElizaMarie @Butterflyamore I have seen it! It was gorgeous! I keep recommending it to everyone! 9mo
Butterflyamore @ElizaMarie Oh, good! I‘m glad you‘ve seen it! What an amazing film! 9mo
Butterflyamore @ElizaMarie I just figured out how to tag a book. It‘s been right in front of our faces all along. When you go to reply to someone‘s comment, there are two little icons below your reply box on the left. The first one is for tagging books! 9mo
Butterflyamore @ElizaMarie Haha! You‘re welcome! 9mo

#TuneIntoNovember #ForReadonsUnknown @Cinfhen @Robothugs : “ we sat down in the open chair. ...... but my heart it don‘t beat , it don‘t beat the way it used to”.

Pickpick

This volume contains 265 letters that Van Gogh wrote between 1872 and 1890, mainly to his brother Theo. In his letters he writes about money and how he is always in want of more, but mostly the letters focuses on painting techniques and coloring, other painters that he likes and novelists that he reads. This collection of letters is for anyone interested in art.

hlgreenfield @Sarah83 I'm afraid they didn't allow photos 😥 2y
Sarah83 I thought it would be like that. Hope you had great fun. The bookmarks look pretty cool. 😉 2y

My next read. This is a collection of 265 of van Gogh's letters. I'm curious to find out what he has to say about literature, art and especially his own paintings.

I've a feeling this is going to be a reading project for the next months.
