Are You Autotelic?

I found an interesting video by Christopher Jobson, Painting In The Dark: The Struggle For Art In A World Obsessed With Popularity.  Jobson  discusses Vincent Van Gogh’s desire to create everyday, learning for the sake of gaining experience, and seeking the acceptance of only one, his brother Theo.

This is one of my favorite Van Gogh paintings, Lane of Poplars at Sunset.


“What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?” – Vincent Van Gogh
