The Potato Eaters (Dutch: De Aardappeleters) is a very Famous Painting by the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh which he painted in April 1885 while in Nuenen, Netherlands. It is housed in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Children Paintings Van Gogh said he wanted to depict peasants as they really were. He deliberately chose coarse and ugly models, thinking that they would be natural and unspoiled in his finished work: " Flower Paintings You see, I really have wanted to make it so that people get the idea that these folk, who are eating their potatoes by the light of their little lamp, have tilled the earth themselves with these hands they are putting in the dish, Boats Paintings and so it speaks of manual labor and ó that they have thus honestly earned their food. I wanted it to give the idea of a wholly different way of life from ours ó civilized people. People Paintings So I certainly donít want everyone just to admire it or approve of it without knowing why."
