Sunrise (May)

'Sunrise', 1883

Visiting Van Gogh. Because before sunrise men are going to work rugged up against the cold. Because the effort is made again despite everything they know and dream. Because walls, like a new work, take clean shape with first light. Because sky is becoming the grey immensity of dissolving stars. Because work calls them out of their own darkness. Because white as paper, pale orange, May horizon lifts the Earth’s awareness. “Because one must make efforts like those of the lost souls. Because there is something diabolical about executing a water-colour. Because there is something good in every energetic motion.”
