One of the saddest things about Vincent van Gogh’s life and painterly times was that he didn’t live to see the extent of his compositional legacy and the generations of artists since his passing who have been inspired by a painter long recognised as amongst the most influential of the 20th Century. A celebrated contemporary landscape artist who has evidently been heavily influenced by van Gogh’s back catalogue – and who has thus far lived a relatively colourful life himself - is the acclaimed John Myatt. Now a legitimate artist with a string of celebrity followers – after serving time for the part he played in a master art forgery racket - in 2009 Myatt even released a book about his experience, titled ‘Provenance’. Here and now in the summer of 2017 Myatt returns with ‘Starry Night with Snow and Distance Woodland’; his brand new hand-signed and embellished canvas limited edition which pictorially blends some familiar van Gogh visual real estate. And which is destined to strike an illustrative chord with Myatt’s legions of fans, worldwide. Hence the need to speak with us about this piece, ASAP.
