Van Gogh Art Cards Ideas and Links @harmonyfinearts

Need a quick artist study? Van Gogh can always come to the rescue! He is such a child friendly artist to study with his bold colors and his often whimsical style. He paintings can make you happy or sad, so much to talk about.


Van Gogh Art Cards from Dover @harmonyfinearts

I have on my resource shelf a set of six art postcards from Dover Publications that have been well used over our years of artist study ( only $1.99 on Amazon). We have viewed them, touched them, hung them on the wall, and copied them into our art notebooks. I highly recommend having art that your children can handle and view up close. This set of cards is a great starter set if you are just getting started with a more serious study of artists.

Which paintings are included?

  1. Self-Portrait in Front of an Easel (1888)
  2. Portrait of Patience Escalier (1888)
  3. La Mousme’ (1888)
  4. Vase with Irises (1890)
  5. The Bridge at Langois (1888)
  6. Cafe’ Terrace at Night (1888)

I have linked the paintings above for future reference.
