Another artwork that depicts the movement of emotions and the human psyche is the Bedroom at Arles painted by Vincent van Gogh, a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter. Created in 1888 with oil on canvas, it was intended to be symbolic of restful peace. A glance at this painting, buzzing with energy and filled with idiosyncrasies, gives the viewer just the opposite sensation. Van Gogh painted the perspective, walls and decorations all atilt and seeming to close in, to emphasize his own psychological state and the mental tension he felt at the time. The picture above shows his first version of “Bedroom at Arles”.  He painted two more in 1889.
