Jacques Lejeune's insight:

Van Gogh was truthfully the most prolific master painter of the 2nd.half of the 19th century. He died very young at the age of 37, but managed to paint hundreds of fantastic paintings. In the last three years of his life, his paintings became outstanding while his mental illness was aggravating. Nevertheless, he maintained till the last moment, a painting style full of colors and almost joyful.

Traci Selby's curator insight, June 1, 2013 5:19 PM

This is a great way to have fun with art education! Nothing beats the hands on and direct eye visual stimulation as the real painting itself, however with technology as it has become prevalent, this is a way to connect the verbage of art, history of artists and art. I am creating an art curriculum for use by preschool aged children that will encompass famous artists from history and  simple verbage for language used in art. This gives me hope to creat an app that will extend the Montessori inspired Art Curriculum for use by preschoolers.
