"Much of Van Gogh’s work prominently features the color yellow, with the most famous example being “Starry Night,” which includes depictions of yellow spots surrounded by coronas that are remarkably similar to a known side effect of digitalis, a medicine commonly used to treat epilepsy during Van Gogh’s time. The altered visual perception stemming from the medicine has therefore been theorized to have had a possible influence on the way Van Gogh perceived the world, as reflected in his art."

I paid much attention to his work UNTIL I saw some of his original art. Then I was hooked forever. This one is new to me and thank you, Bommom, for posting. I enjoyed solving the puzzle.

New to me too. Thanks for a Van Gogh...

Right on, Pat! I'd forgotten about them -- Van Gogh's yellow are certainly symbolic. ' )

I guess we don't want to run into these kids in a back alley.

Thanks for the visit, Annie, Andy, Bill, and Pat.

You're right, Annie. Children of the Corn.

I've never seen this painting before either. Faces that only a mother could love. :-[ Thanks, Gayle.

The expressions are quite remarkable on the two 'kids'. The one on the right looks a lot like a younger, tough Jimmy Cagney (yes, redundant...) and the one on the left reminds me of William Devane. They both look like they're about to break out into the 'The Lollipop Guild' song from the Wizard of Oz'. Hit it boys! https://youtu.be/6KSiyaqnZYs

There, I've set the discussion bar low for openers, so someone else can now take it up to the artistry norms of the Bommom Art Institute! ;-) Thanks Gayle!

But does this work also depict how Vincent thought of children? These two were either having a pretty bad day, or they were nasty little critters. Thank you, Gayle, as I had never seen this Van Gogh. (And perhaps that's because he's never been a favorite.)
