Vincent (Starry Starry Night) Don McLean

What am I in the eyes of most people — a nonentity, an eccentric, or an unpleasant person — somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low. All right, then — even if that were absolutely true, then I should one day like to show by my work what such an eccentric, such a nobody, has in his heart.

Vincent van Gogh
30 March 1853 – 29 July 1890

(Letter to Theo van Gogh, 1882)
