|VAN GOGH, 1882|
"I have to listen to her gossip, as I'm with her all the time, but I don't worry about that. I"ve never had so much help as from this ugly and faded creature. For me she's beautiful and I find in her exactly what I need. Life has marched over her body. Pain and visitations have marked it. Now I can get something out of it."
--Letter from Vincent van Gogh to Anthon van Rappard
