    In a letter to his younger brother and patron, Theo, Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890) once wrote, 'I lose absolutely nothing by staying where I am and being content to watch things pass, as a spider waits in its web for the flies.' Van Gogh’s painting in his last few years, a notoriously conflicted period punctuated by hospital stays and spent mostly in the south of France, reflects this ability for observation. And whether the subject was a vase of flowers, a field of billowing grasses, or peach trees in peak bloom, his paintings consistently display their trademark vibrancy.
