Van Gogh's boots and shoes
Shoes and boots were often painted by Van Gogh and generated many studies by philosophers and other scholars. Martin Heidegger was the first to present his thoughts when he saw the "Boots with laces" at a museum. Mayer Schapiro has answered him and there has been other authors trying to explain the phenomenon. I like looking and feeling. I just wish they were all at the same museum and I could go there... now!
