At the Vincent Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, there's a text printed on the wall of the second-floor landing. It explains Van Gogh's ambition as a painter; that Van Gogh viewed his work as a kind of "love letter" to humanity. He hoped to reflect the world's own glory, with love. An artistic impulse, but one not exclusive to artists. The aspiration is rarely rewarded, or even understood, by most people. But whenever it is found, in whatever form it takes, it is an act of genius.
