Vincent Willem van Gogh was born on March 30th 1853 and died on July 29th 1890; he was a Post-Impressionist painter of Dutch origin whose work””notable for its rough beauty, emotional honesty, and bold color””had a far-reaching influence on 20th-century art.
He began to draw as a child, and continued to draw throughout the years that led up to his decision to become an artist. He did not begin painting until his late twenties, completing many of his best-known works during the last two years of his life. In just over a decade, he produced more than 2,100 artworks, consisting of 860 oil paintings and more than 1,300 watercolors, drawings, sketches, and prints. After years of painful anxiety and frequent bouts of mental illness, he died aged 37 from a gunshot wound, generally accepted to be self-inflicted.
