Purples of Amsterdam

This photo of Lilies is out of focus, but this masterpiece is the first thing you see when you enter the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. The close ups came out better and show the brush strokes. The explanation is handy. The Van Gogh Museum does an outstanding job explaining every aspect of Van Gogh, including the science of studying and verifying his paintings. His influences are interesting as well. This museum makes a lot of knowledge accessible.
