Vincent van Gogh


Vincent van Gogh Printable(** for Premium Members only)

Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) was a Dutch post-impressionist painter. Although today he is highly regarded, during his lifetime he received little recognition and only sold one painting. His sunflower series may be his most popular work, but he was prolific, completing more than 800 paintings in ten years.

Biography: Vincent van Gogh

Van Gogh “was a post-impressionist painter whose work, notable for its beauty, emotion and color, highly influenced 20th-century art. He struggled with mental illness, and remained poor and virtually unknown throughout his life.” Visit Biography for five van Gogh videos, and an accompanying biography.
