#FanArt Feel like walking around in Van Gogh's painting The Bedroom (1888)?

Daubigny chose large, non-standard formats for his canvases, which could not be bought ready-made. The ‘double-square’ canvas – with a width twice its height – was especially suited to his sweeping panoramas.
Towards the end of his life, Vincent used precisely the same canvas format for Wheatfield under Thunderclouds (1890). #Daubigny

‘There is nothing like working in the nature [ …] where one truly enjoys being. Then the paintings show the effects of one’s inner life and the sweet sensations one feels there.’
Charles-François Daubigny, 1872

In 1854, Japan opened its borders to foreign trade for the first time in 200 years. Japanese prints, household goods and ornaments flooded the Western market, a craze that the artist Henry Somm depicted in prints showing Parisiennes surrounded by Japanese objects. #ParisianPrints
