One night I saw the movie about the painter Vincent van Gogh with Kirk Douglas. The day after I bought a sketching pad and from then on I was sold. I copied van Gogh with red chalk, I was and lived like van Gogh. He seriously ruled over my life. When I think about it my whole artistic life has been influensed by van Gogh and his art.
Note: Film “Lust for Life” (1956)
