Re: Van Gogh Museum takes a new look at Vincent

DrFumblefinger ·
The Van Gogh Museum is one of the most interesting art museums I've ever visited. Basically it's the collection of Vincent's brother, Theo, an art dealer who saw his brother's potential and who helped support him by purchasing his paintings. Around half of the art Van Gogh created is in this museum and with this fresh look, it's definitely a "Must See" for folks coming to Amsterdam.

Re: Where Gumbo Was #11: The Arena of Arles and the World of Rome

When you get to Arles, you may want to look at another bridge, this one crossing the Rhone. The clip below is from this website , which also has several other side-by-side comparisons of his paintings and today. The bridge here is modified or replaced, but the steps and the walk along the Rhone have not. And here's another image from my visit, looking down the Canal d'Arles from near the Langlois Bridge (the official name of the "Van Gogh Bridge.")

I always thought picking olives would be a labour intensive task. I watched as the farmers wife placed a round blanket ( with a split in it ) on the ground under the tree. Then the tractor had a claw attachment that gripped the tree. Then it shook the tree for 10 seconds. All the olives fell on the blanket. Job done - 1 minute a tree !

The remains of Rome are great to see, it cannot be denied, but it's those lovely little bridges that will be the target when I go to Arles. And I will, no doubt. The village within the walls reminds me of the "anfiteatro" in Lucca Italy. It was filled by houses until the 19th century when it was cleared, leaving the ring of buildings on the perimeter and creating the Piazza dell'Anfiteatro. I had the good fortune of renting a large apartment in the perimeter ring of buildings, overlooking...
