For those who value timeliness in their viral memes, this one isn't for you. Surfacing a little over a month ago on Boing Boing and Flavorwire, this chart of Van Gogh's paintings as pie charts is now well-traveled.

A. A Wind Beaten Tree
B. Starry Night
C. Man Stooping with Stick or Spade
D .Still Life With Beer Mug and Fruit
E. Two Women in the Woods
F. Beach at Scheveningen in Calm Weather
