“Peasant Burning Weeds,” Vincent van Gogh. A tonalist canvas from Vincent, not the explosion of color and thick brushwork we expect.

From his letters to his brother, Theo…

“Do our inner thoughts ever show outwardly? There may be a great fire in our soul, yet no one ever comes to warm himself at it, and the passers-by see only a wisp of smoke through the chimney, and go along their way. Look here, now, what must be done? Must one tend that inner fire, have salt in oneself, wait patiently yet with so much impatience for the hour when somebody will come and sit down near it—maybe to stay?” — Vincent van Gogh, 1880
