Today’s quote from Vincent Van Gogh is drawn from Artquotes:
I certainly hope to sell in the course of time, but I think I shall be able to influence it most effectively by working steadily on, and that at the present moment making desperate efforts to force the work I am doing now upon the public would be pretty useless.
……. Vincent Van Gogh
It was amazing what Van Gogh was able to achieve in just a few short years of of painting. His ability to remain true to his art, even in the absence of any sales at all, was truly remarkable.
Todays art market has so many opportunities for success for the artist who looks for the open doors. I wonder how Theo Van Gogh might have chosen to market Vincent’s art if they were alive today?
