Doctor Who––Series 5, Episode 10: “Vincent and the Doctor”

“Between you and me, in a hundred words, where do you think Van Gogh rates in the history of art?”
“Well… um… big question. But, to me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly, the most popular, great painter of all time. The most beloved. His command of colour the most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world, no one had ever done it before. Perhaps no one ever will again. To my mind, that strange, wild man who roamed the fields of Provence was not only the world’s greatest artist, but also one of the greatest men who ever lived.”

I Could Do That: The Art Assignment

For those that need a response to “well, I could have done that? Why is that on a wall?” or when you’re questioning “why is this considered art?”

So you look at a work of art and think to yourself, I could have done that. And maybe you really could have, but the issue here is more complex than that – why didn’t you? Why did the artist? And why does it have an audience? We delve into it by looking at work by artists like Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Piet Mondrian, and Cy Twombly, among others. You might find it’s not quite as simple as you think.

I’ve always wanted an AU where Grantaire was on Drunk History. If you’re not familiar with the show, you will be soon considering Lin-Manuel has recorded an episode for the next season (which I got very excited about). It’s a show where people get anywhere from pretty drunk to completely wasted and try to retell a historical event, and then a group of actors will pantomime and lipsync to the drunk storyteller’s retelling of events. It’s like this if you’re curious.

Anyway this is complete garbage but what else can you expect from me.
