Transcript of Artist: Vincent van Gogh

Van Gogh is an amazing painter, and is a famous artist today. That was not always the case. In his life time he was actually the opposite of being known he was alone, and lived a solitary life.

Van Gogh dared to make bright distinctive paintings in a dark sad period in time.
He was a Dutch post-impressionist painter whose work, notable for its rough beauty, emotional honesty and bold color, had a far-reaching influence on 20th-century art. After years of painful anxiety and frequent bouts of mental illness, he died at the age of only 37.Van Gogh began to draw as a child, and he 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. That is in ONLY 10 YEARS!
