Van Gogh's bouts with insanity made him unfit for the ministry, so he found another way of service - his art. He combines the irreconcilable, with emotion and expression, punctuated by bold brush strokes - violet, cobalt, orange - with skies almost carved from the paint. The church has no doors, no way in, yet is lit from within by intense mystical warmth and love. This was one of Van Gogh's final paintings, for he died by his own hand two months later.
