"I have a terrible lucidity at moments, when nature is so glorious in those days I am hardly conscious of myself and the picture comes to me like a dream." -- Vincent #VanGogh .
exuberant poster, "Vincent", by Martin Sharp (1967), who created some of the most iconic posters of the #1960s #counterculture. here Sharp catches Vincent in one of his moments of #manic, #creative #psychosis that captures his #work at the convergence of passion and pain, lightness and darkness. Vincent says elsewhere: "This is just how I feel life when I work hard...I'm in a frenzy of work, since the trees are in bloom and I would like to make an Orchard of Provence monstrous with joy."
best seen in person at the #sixties exhibition at @nypl for a feast of other counterculture delights. .
