If anyone wants to know what prostitute means, I wouldn’t search it up!!!!!! -He later went to the hospital where he got inspiration to make master pieces like Starry Night and Irises.
VAN GOGH’S TRAGIC ENDING -Sadly, his mental problems were to much to handle. He later died by a suicidal act. He somehow got a gun and fired at himself. He was pronounced dead by doctors due to suicide. - But his legacy and paintings live on. His paintings are still kept in museums around the world. He was age 37 on July 29, 1890 when he passed away.
FAMOUS COMPOSITIONS His paintings like Starry Night or Sunflowers are very famous. He got inspiration by a painting which shows spirals. The name was Whirlpool Galaxy by Lord Rosse in 1845. He used dark colors to complement the night sky. He also used visual texture and lines to make it look calm. He also used post impressionism which means light brushstrokes in the painting and more paintings he did.
OUR INSPIRATION (CONT.) We used lots of colors, visual textures, and spaces. We chose Van Gogh because he was a very inspiring artist. Once we heard about his legacy and saw his paintings, we thought, “Why not him!” And since he was so inspiring, we both liked his works and decided to use in our presentation.
