Introduction Vincent van Gogh is one of the most famous painters in the world. He is considered the greatest Dutch painter after Rembrandt. He was born on the 30th March 1853 in Zundert, The Netherlands. Van Gogh had three sisters and two brothers but he relied on his younger brother Theo the most.
Introduction Before becoming an artist, he had many other jobs in different countries: - he was an art dealer in France, - teaching assistant in England - and a preacher in Belgium.
Sunflowers Vincent believed that colors showed emotions. He used colors to express himself. His favorite colors were yellow and orange because they are warm and bright. Vincent loved flowers, young ones as well as the old ones which have lost petals. Once, after an argument with his parents he went out to buy himself a bunch of flowers to cheer himself up. His favorite flowers were sunflowers. Van Gogh intended to decorate Gaugin’s room with sunflower paintings.
The Red Vineyard The most important person in Vincent’s life was his brother Theo. Vincent van Gogh relied on his brother because Theo gave him money to become an artist. This was the only painting van Gogh sold during his life. It is now in a museum in Russia.
Self-portrait Van Gogh’s best friend was another famous artist called Paul Gauguin. Once, van Gogh had an argument with Gauguin and he was so angry with him that he cut a bit of his own ear off with a razor. This painting is a self- portrait of Vincent with a bandage after this incident when he cut off a bit of his ear.
