Characters: Vincent Van Gogh, Amy Pond.
Written For: Challenge 130: Art at dw100.
Spoilers: Vincent And The Doctor.
Summary: In his own time, Van Gogh is a struggling artist.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters
He’s one of the most famous artists in the world by Amy’s time, but like so many, in his own time his talent remains unrecognised. Vincent Van Gogh can’t even sell a picture for the price of a drink.
But he has pride, dignity, and the desire to paint, so a struggling artist he remains, through the ups and downs of his life, which seem to be mostly downs.
To Amy though, it’s still a privilege to spend time with one of the world’s greatest artists. It’s just a pity he doesn’t know how much he’ll be admired one day.
