I thrilled to van Gogh when I was young, but w/ snobbery of the insecure tyro aesthete, I took to disdaining him for his popularity. Art that wasn’t difficult couldn’t be serious. In fact, there is no end of difficulty in van Gogh—his own, surmounted. I came back to him not just cos I tired of resisting his talent. It was the value of joy, irrespective of happiness n intellectual pride. All good art teaches some variant of that consoling n humbling truth. Van Gogh is its saint.
