What Is The Difference Between Vincent Van Gogh And Don Mclean

Decent Essays
Vincent van Gogh and Don McLean In our Art Appreciation class at RSU, during the fall semester, we watched a presentation on two artists. The artists were Vincent van Gogh and Don McLean. Our professor found the video on YouTube. The song “Vincent” by McLean played in the background, while a slideshow of van Gogh’s most famous works appeared on the screen. The song beautifully describes van Gogh’s life and work in a melancholy way. Because of the way the video was put together, it was almost like two artists talking to each other, though many years apart. McLean’s song is a letter to a long-dead troubled soul. He wrote the song to argue that van Gogh was not a madman, just a man who had been broken. I loved the way he worded his phrases.
