Still Life 1964
Mazatlan, Mexico 1969
This scene is taken from a very humble doctor's office waiting room in Mazatlan, Mexico in 1969. It was a difficult period for the artist, with little money, the onset of illness and far from home, while waiting for the doctor he began sketching the waiting room. The small picture hanging on the wall over the empty chair is of the Madonna and the baby Jesus, illuminated by the light of the open window, the sun's rays conquer the darkness of Vincent's surroundings, as if to say everything will be transformed and there is hope.
