Description

And now we travel to Egypt...unlike van Gogh, who never did. "van Gogh Never Saw Giza", 12x12 inches oil on canvas. Original painting available for purchase here www.etsy.com/listing/251170941…

I have decided to create a collection of "van Gogh never saw __insert landmark here__" paintings. This one showcases him never seeing the Great Pyramids at Giza. This piece is the 5th in the series.

Where did the idea come from? So glad you asked! I painted an impressionist Eiffel Tower painting in 2013 (you can find the piece here on deviantart - the piece is titled "Seine"). A travel blog miss-attributed it to van Gogh (who never even saw the Eiffel Tower complete,) and I have been fighting paint and sip studios using my painting for profit ever since. If you had told me prior to 2013 that I would literally have to prove to people that I am not Vincent van Gogh, I would have laughed entirely too hard at just the thought. This collection showcases how ludicrous the whole thing really is.
