Vincent van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh Vincent William van Gogh (March 30, 1853 - July 29 1890) is a famous Dutch Painter whose works include some of the world's most popular, highest recognized and priced pieces. Van Gogh was a post-impressionist artist. He produced over 2000 works with most of his best-known pieces being created in the last couple years of his life. During this time he cut off a piece of his left ear and fell victim to mental illness, which eventually led to his suicide.

Vincent Van Gogh was born in Groot-Zundert in the southern Netherlands. In 1869, at the age of fifteen, Van Gogh got a job with a firm of art dealers. He made great money for a while up until he started to resent how art was handled as a commodity. Shortly after in 1876, he began expressing this to his customers and was eventually terminated from his position. After a short time as a teacher, Van Gogh became a missionary worker. Religion had a strong influence in his life at this time. It was not until 1880 that he began his journey as an artist.
At first, Van Gogh strongly favored sombre colors for his work. This changed while he was in Paris after he discovered Impressionism and Neo-Impressionism. His unique, highly recognizable style was born after he began to fuse their style and vivid colors with his work. His improved style was fully developed while spending time in Arles, France.
Van Gogh's brother Theo was the primary figure in Van Gogh's life. He provided financial support for Van Gogh on a constant basis. They also had a strong lifelong friendship which was documented in many letters that they wrote to one another.
Van Gogh was a true pioneer of Expressionism. His influence on 20th century art was tremendous. After his death, his fame grew quickly and the value of his work skyrocketed. He would become a world famous artist, but unfortunately, not be alive to know it.
