Doctor Who Drabble: Van Gogh

Title: Van Gogh
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Vincent Van Gogh, Amy Pond.
Rating: G
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.

The End


Oh. That was sad. :o(

Beautiful written. <3
Thank you so much! I wasn't sure I'd captured the tragedy of his situation. =)

Re: Van Gogh drabble

All readers are welcome, I don't write a lot of Doctor Who at the moment though, aside from the drabbles. I loved that episode too, we don't get a lot of historical episodes in New Who.

At least he will be remembered. Particularly by Amy.
And will become world-renowned. Just a shame some people have to die before their talent is appreciated.

Thank you!
At lease the doctor game him a glimps of how famous he would become.

great drabble
That was some consolation.

Thank you!
