The Potato Eaters Canvas Print

Rs.3,600.00

Availability: In stock

Vincent Van Gogh was astoundingly prolific, producing all of his works during a short 10-year period. Although he only sold one painting in his lifetime, he inspired numerous future artistic movements.

Painted in April 1985, the The Potato Eaters is related to the ‘Peasant Character Studies’ that Van Gogh worked on during the same time period.

Van Gogh said he wanted to depict peasants as they really were. He deliberately chose coarse and ugly models, thinking that they would be natural and unspoiled in his finished work: "You see, I really have wanted to make it so that people get the idea that these folk, who are eating their potatoes by the light of their little lamp, have tilled the earth themselves with these hands they are putting in the dish, and so it speaks of manual labor and — that they have thus honestly earned their food. I wanted it to give the idea of a wholly different way of life from ours — civilised people. So I certainly don’t want everyone just to admire it or approve of it without knowing why."

The Cottage, also painted in 1885, was a home that the De Groot family, immortalised in ‘The Potato Eaters’ shared with another family.

Writing two years later, Van Gogh still considered ‘The Potato Eaters’ his most successful painting: "What I think about my own work is that the painting of the peasants eating potatoes that I did in Nuenen is after all the best thing I did”.
