Although cleverly handled, making it the possible reason for Vincents documented madness, but never gave a reason as to why only he could see the beastie.
I'd say on a meta level the beastie paralleled Van Gogh's inner demons which while very real only he could "see".

Within the story itself, given the scene with Starry Night, the dialog about how deeply Van Gogh experiences colors and his ability to see a sadness within Amy, I think it could be argued that Van Gogh saw the world differently that perhaps could explain how he saw the creature.
