Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Willem van Gogh was born on 30 March 1853 in Zundert, Netherlands and died on 29 July 1890 Auvers-sur-Oise, France. He committed suicided because of his mental illness, his poverty and his anxiety. He was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter whose work had influence on 20th-century art. 

He made over 21,000 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings. They include portraits, self portraits, landscapes, still lives, olive trees, cypresses, wheat fields and sunflowers.

Some of his most famous work are Starry Night, Sunflowers, Bedroom in Arles, Portrait of Dr. Gachet and Sorrow. However, his artworks weren’t valued until his death so he was very poor. Nowadays, his portraits are the most expensive in the world. For example, Self-portrait without beard was sold in New York for 71’5 million dollars.

All in all, I think he was an amazing painter who unfortunately wasn’t recognised when he was alive. Nevertheless, nowadays he is known as one of the most famous painters in our history.
