Vincent van Gogh's "Bedroom in Arles" 1888

This is the first version of Vincent van Gogh’s Bedroom in Arles. The image seems like simple bedroom, but the colors make up for the simplicity for me. I realized most of the colors used are blue and orange, which compliment each other. The blues and oranges seem more vibrant and rich in this bedroom. I can see how these color work together, because if the blue color wasn't present, I wouldn’t be able to see how much orange was incorporated like in furniture, frames on the walls, and even the floor. I think if this painting was made in black and white, I wouldn’t appreciate it as much. The colors makes the scene more pleasing to me.
