Vincent, why dont you sell your oil tubes?

 

Lets imagine this situation; in a sunny afternoon of late XIX century, Vicent van Gogh is siting somewhere in the countryside painting what we nowadays would call an impressionist landscape. A man who was walking by, approaches him and tells Vincent – Hey, I really like your painting but, are those brushes and oil tubes also for sale? They would look pretty amazing on my living room.

If someone would have told Vincent that a few decades later, technology would become the main focus within artistic creation and that the important thing from all those artworks was not what he was trying to communicate but the brushes he used to create them, he might have been a way more successful man as he was in life.

This is what Vincent should have seen
