The "Potato Peeler" by Van Gogh was always one of my favorite art pieces. The reverse, known by "Self-Portrait with a Straw Hat", is also very impressive. Both of them are quite breathtaking, really. They are simple but, at the same time, so complex that you can't take your eyes off it. I just wish I could observe paintings like this one all day long.

The serenity in the face of the woman who's peeling potatoes is admirable, really. And the tones used in this painting are dark, which is typical from Van Gogh.

However, the verso of it shows a man with a stern look in his face, it's like we can almost see what he's thinking. In this portrait it's like Van Gogh's interest in individual character is expressed. The colors of it are a clear contrast to the tones used in the "Potato Peeler" clearly. They are so different and yet it's like they complete each other.

I can never get tired of art, I mean... how can someone look at a masterpiece like this one and don't be mesmerized? Looking at this type of pieces makes anyone realize that geniuses don't are only related to science and mathematics. Geniuses can be painters, archeologists, writers, doctors, dancers, philosophers, architects, musicians, cooks and in any other job that requires production, art and hard mind working. Why do we keep only valuing Einstein, Pitagoras, Newton, Hawking, Nicolau Copernicus and forget about other geniuses? I mean, of course those scientists deserve all the credit because they're absolutely fabulous and smart. But we should also value other geniuses, like Luís de Camões, Liev Tolstói, Dante Alighieri, Charles Dickens, Frank Lloyd Wright, Zaha Hadid, Miguel Ângelo, Frida Kahlo, Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi, Salvador Dali, James Beard and other artists and people with genius minds. I mean, there's a huge list of notorious people that should be way more recognized.

People think Maths and Sciences are the most difficult subjects and, because of that, the scientists and mathematics are more valued than the other genius people. That's not fair because it takes a lot of work to write those classical books, such as "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen or "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens. Not to talk about those great epics by Omero and Camões. It's not easy, at all. Not everyone can write epic poetry, just like not everyone can paint something like "Monolisa" or compose classical music like "The Four Seasons" by Vivaldi or "Ride of the Walkyries" by Wagner.
