Sorrow is better than joy . . . for by the sadness of the countenance, the heart is made better . . . for those who have learnt and are learning to look at Jesus Christ, there will always be reason to rejoice . . . the pilgrim goes on sorrowful yet always rejoicing . . . —Vincent van Gogh to his brother Theo, November 3, 18761

At last I have a landscape with olive tree and also a new study of a starry sky . . . I’m fairly sure that these two studies I speak of are comparable in sentiment . . . —Vincent van Gogh to his brother Theo, June 18, 18891
