Heaven or Hell

64 days in heaven and hell (118)
Day 31, November 22
Van Gogh’s paintings, sketches and drawings were all around in the Yellow House. Gauguin certainly didn’t like all of them, but the ‘Roubine du Roi’ works must have caught his attention for some reason. They inspired him to paint this almost abstract, but intriguing scene with washerwomen on the bank of the canal.
It was his most daring attempt up to this day. His self-confidence was peaking right after a few encouraging messages. His art dealer (Vincent’s brother Theo) had just written him about the sale of a few paintings and of Degas’ praise for his work. Only a few days later an invitation to participate in the next exhibition of the renowned ‘Les XX’ found it’s way to the Yellow House.

In contrast, Van Gogh’s morale was deeply affected by Gauguin’s successes.

#dont talk to me about bellamy in this scene okay #dont talk to me about bellamy in this episode at all #he risked everything #like he always does #to find her #no matter how much resentment he may carry towards her for leaving him alone #he would move heaven and hell for her #and after three months the first thing he hears about clarke #is how shes being hunted #and he drops everything to ensure her safety #forgetting his own #and here he is #and he sees shes tied up; so she must be still alive #and he stops dead in tracks and has to swallow back the tears #because his princess is still alive #and he can finally take her home with him
