April Fools

So, I’ve never been one for elaborate and creative April Fools jokes. But, in the spirit of the day, here’s some Van Gogh paintings – featured on Artcyclopedia a few months back – that have been given the tilt-shift treatment. The change of perspective might just mess with your head.

Starry Night Over the Rhone (1888)

The Red Vineyard (1888)

Prisoners Exercising (1890)

An Idea of What the Sun is Like

The Red Room by Henri Matisse.

“People have said of Matisse that before him all painting was dark, and this may be false and unjust, but the important thing is that they have said it, that beside Matisse, van Gogh turns black, and Renoir, and Monet, and Turner…There are painters who have had this glory, this role of dazzling men for at least half a century, men who see nothing in their work but the light. They are like a window opening in the night of humanity, and from them young men get an idea of what the sun is like.”

– Louis Aragon from the preface to the exhibition catalogue of the 1948 Matisse retrospective at the Philadelphia Museum of Art
