Symbolism and Psychological Effects of Color
This painting is love lost. The white dress possibly at a happier time, the grey dress someone in mourning. The lady in red, strong and happy is new love and lust.
The blue in this painting portrays sadness. The flowers are blue, the sailors jacket is blue. Van Gogh was also a man thought to be depressed and this painting depicts a man in sadness.
The artist portrayal of himself without expression and a skeleton arm would by symbolic of death. One would believe he is sad or mourning someone lost. Maybe a loved one was taken by illness.
