Transcript: Vincent VanGogh Born March 30, 1853 in Zundert, Netherlands VanGogh would put all of his passion into his work, even though the people in his town HATED his artwork and disliked him as a person Out of his 1800 works, he only ever sold one Origins Continued Impact on the world The art of painting dates back to the prehistoric times. Oldest known painting was discovered in Puente Viesgo, Spain. The painting is 40, 800 years old The painting is simply just a red dot or "disc" Sean claims that the painting is haunted, after experiencing chilling moments right after moving the painting into his home. Such as the sounds of crying coming from inside the rooms and a shadowy figure appearing at the edge of his bed at night. Impact on the world The Anguished Man Artisan Though cavemen used to paint using their hands, there is evidence that shows that some form of brushes were used to make some paintings. It is not clear what they used to make them but some speculate that they used sticks or bones and the fur of animals to make them, and possibly their own hair. Origin of the paintbrush Before its loss of popularity, paintings were used to document important events Unknown artist The painting was handed down to a man named Sean Robinson from his grandmother who received it from a friend 25 years before. The friend who passed it down to his grandmother told her that the artist who painted it mixed his own blood in with the painting and committed suicide shortly after completing it.

VanGogh The earlier paint brushes were handmade using long hog bristle. The hair of squirrel, goat, ox, badger, horse-hair, and sable were also used.
