Vincent Van Gogh

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vincent Willem van Gogh (March 30, 1853 in Zundert � July 29, 1890 in Auvers-sur-Oise) was a Dutch Post-Impressionist artist. His paintings and drawings include some of the world's best known, most popular and most expensive pieces.

Van Gogh spent his early life working for a firm of art dealers and after a brief spell as a teacher, became a missionary worker in a very poor mining region. He did not embark upon a career as an artist until 1880. Initially he worked in somber colors, until an encounter in Paris with Impressionism and Neo-Impressionism, whose brighter colours and style of painting he developed into a uniquely recognisable style, which was fully developed during time spent at Arles.
