Vicent Van Gogh was born in 1885. He was a brilliant, Dutch painter.

He painted Rest from work or Noon in 1890. He used bright colours to Paint.
The peaceful nature of the midday rest. They are blue and yellow colours..

Van Gogh did not name the painting, so it is listed in art books and art websites under different names such as “Noon: Rest From Work” and “Noon Rest.”. Considered worthless when it was painted, but now it is of great value.
