"One must work long and hard to arrive at the truthful. What I want and set as my goal is damned difficult, and yet i don't believe I'm aiming too high. I want to make drawings that move some people... Whether in figures or in landscapes, I would like to express not something sentimentally melancholic but deep sorrow, in short. I want to reach the point where people say of my work, that man feels deeply and that man feels subtly."
Tree Trunks in the Grass
- Van Gogh, 1890
