“What a fine sight an old working man makes, in his patched bombazine suit with his bald head,” reported Vincent van Gogh as he created this “Worn Out” lithograph.
Van Gogh further explained:
“This is far from all theology – simply the fact that the poorest woodcutter, heath farmer or miner can have moments of emotion and mood that give him a sense of an eternal home that he is close to.”
He renamed the art “At Eternity’s Gate.” Two months later, van Gogh took his life at age of 37.
“Creation is a solitary pursuit. Love is what brings you closer to art.”
