La Chambre - Van Gogh

First of all, the most important part, the title: La Chambre. This picture it's of Vicent van Gogh. He was a Dutch post-Impressionist. He born on 30th March 1853 on Zundert  (Netherlands) and he died on 29 July 1890 on Auvers-sur-Oise (France). 

The picture: there is bed near the door. Next to the window, which is near a chair, there are two pictures. Next to this  two pictures there is a table that has some jugs and glasses. On the left of the image there is a wardrobe and near it there is another chair.

On this picture there is a lot of light. There isn't any dark place.

The bed is enormous and too long, is bigger than the table, for example. 

On "La Chambre", Vicent van Gogh use oil on canvas. This picture were done in 1888 and it's at Van Gogh Museum (Amsterdam). 

But there are three versions of this picture: One it's at Van Gog's Museum (Amsterdam), the second it's on the Art Institute of Chicago and the third is on the Musée d'Orsay (Paris).

 I did it with Macromedia Freehand MX.

It represents a famous part of Gijón, the track of Las Mestas, wich is near the Piles river.

I also made the form of the letters of the tittle and manipulated the rest of the text.
