A Pair of Shoes Cross Stitch Pattern - Vincent van Gogh

You are now viewing "the most famous and celebrated footwear in the history of modern art." This advanced fine-art downloadable cross stitch design was developed from the painting, A Pair of Shoes, done by Vincent van Gogh in 1886.

No one knows exactly how this painting came about, but it is thought by art historians that van Gogh was at a Paris flea market when he spotted these shoes. He purchased them and brought them back to his studio, only to discover they did not fit him. As a result, he decided to use them as a prop for a painting. Van Gogh sent a letter to his brother, Theo, which said, "It is good to love as many things as one can. … I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. And my mind is driven toward these things with an irresistible momentum. … Poetry surrounds us everywhere, but putting it on paper is, alas, not so easy as looking at it. I dream my painting, and then I paint my dream." This painting resides at the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
