A wonderful song about Vincent Van Gogh


    This slideshow of Vincent Van Gogh's work is set to the song "Vincent" by Don McLean, as part of an art and creative writing lesson plan for the patients at Mississippi State Hospital at Whitfield. Compiled by artist Anthony DiFatta, who also suffers from mental illness and teaches art to other adults with mental illness. His work can be found at www.anthonydifatta.net.

    "Starry, starry night

    Portraits hung in empty halls

    Frameless heads on nameless walls

    With eyes that watch the world and can't forget


    Like the strangers that you've met

    The ragged men in ragged clothes

    The silver thorn of bloody rose

    Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow"
