Vincent Van Gogh painted three versions of this painting ‘The Bedroom at Arles’. This is the third version he painted in 1889. He painted it whilst waiting for his mother to visit him in a Lunatic Asylum in St Remy. He was to commit suicide 10 months after this painting. He called his chair ‘The Seat of happiness’ because the colours symbolise sunshine, warmth and happiness.
” When I see my canvasses again, after my illness, The one that seemed the best was ‘The Bedroom’
The idea is to write a haiku about the painting and link to Echostains and Bookstains and it shall appear here. Here’s mine;
Yellow sunlit chair
light up my starry night of rest
your colours soothe me.
