Van Gogh's "Shoes, 1888"

18x21 3/4", oil on canvas
collection Metropolitan Museum

found this image at artcyclopedia.  vangogh knew how to draw with paint.  i should take some lessons.  it is possible these shoes are life sized.  sometimes these views looking 'down' on an object or landscape give me vertigo when observed hanging on a wall.  yes, i still have a lot to learn.
