The Potato Eaters Van Gogh
This is an oil on canvas painting done by Van Gogh in Nuenen, Netherlands April 13th 1885 - May 1885. This painting is currently in the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. I chose this painting because I think it is very interesting how he can make such a dark picture so detailed. I truthfully find the painting kind of ugly but there is something about it that i really like. The amount of detail put into this dark painting is amazing. I also like how he has only one light in the room that is lighting up the one section these five people are sitting in.
