Vincent Van Gogh was born in Holland in 1853. His first paintings were dark and reflected his deep interest in painting the misery of other human beings. In 1886, Van Gogh went to Paris to live with his brother. V I N C E N T VANGOGH (1853-1890)
There he was greatly influenced by the work of other artists, and he adopted brilliant colours for his paintings. In 1888, he moved to Arles in Southern France. During this period, he began to use intense greens, blues and yellows.
The painter Paul Gauguin also moved to Van Gogh’s village. One day they had a violent quarrel and Vincent cut off part of his ear in deep remorse. After this episode he suffered from periodic spells of depression and spent several months in a mental home. He shot himself and died in July 1890.
