I don’t know anyone who doesn’t know about or dislikes Van Gogh. The beloved painter sold only one painting during his lifetime. He is best known for his sunflower paintings series and starry night paintings. He often made several versions of a topic. He also is know for suffering from mental illness and slicing off his own ear. But did you know that Simon & Schuster’s logo is based on Van Gogh’s Sower?
Artists I Like: Vincent Van GoghHere are some larger images and a brief description below:
The drawing is one of many versions of The Sower – the drawing is pencil, ink and watercolor on paper. He created many paintings and drawings of the sower. In fact, Simon & Schuster’s logo is based on Van Gogh’s sower – sowing the seeds of knowledge. I have included a version of Simon & Schuster’s logo from the 1960s in the gallery above.
