People love cicada art possibly more than they love cicadas (my social media posts about cicada art get more views than photos of cicadas).
Here’s Vincent van Gogh’s Three Cicadas. It’s an ink & paper sketch and study. He created it in 1889, in Saint-rémy-de-provence, France. If you want to see it IRL, it’s at the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
I’d like to, but I can’t think of something clever to say about the fact that cicadas sing, and van Gogh removed his left ear.
