Art History in Detail: A conversation about Joseph Roulin, The Postmaster.
Dec 19 2019
Welcome to The Artist's Mindset, hosted by Courtney Abruzzo & Steffan Piper. Broadcasting from the low desert of greater Palm Springs and busy cityscape of Burbank, California. In this conversation, we explore the relationship between Vincent and Joseph as neighbors and how they met. We discuss the portraits of the Roulin family and the impact they had on Vincent. While the world has had a very unswerving and focused interest on Vincent van Gogh's mental health and how it pertained to his life, we have a very candid discussion about some of the best years of his life according to his letters and his paintings. We talk about the educational aspect of teaching children how to appreciate art, how to inspire and interest them in Art History and engage in the practice of painting both in the classroom and at home. Lastly, we take a close look at the Film 'Loving Vincent' from the perspective of art history, accuracy and biograhy. Join us for our discussion on the Roulin's, on The Artist's Mindset. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/theartistsmindset/message
