One of my favorite paintings of all time. Amazingly enough, scientists who study fluid dynamics report that this painting (and others painted by Van Gogh during his psychotic episodes) seems to visually illustrate the concept of "turbulent flow," a concept which is hypothesized but not yet fully understood.
