Vincent Was a Hack

Van Gogh is overrated. That's my highly-trained assessment after spending several eye-reddening hours in a few of Europe's finest museums this month. I don't regret visiting the excellent Van Gogh Museum, but it unintentionally makes a case for the artist as a hapless trend-chaser. The works of Vermeer and Rembrandt, however, repeatedly stopped me in my tracks.

    Hapless trend-chaser? Images of you rubbing your chin in Amsterdam have me feeling a bit bemused. Give me good 'ol Tommy Benton any old day.

    Vermeer is wonderful.
