Vincent Van Gogh
30th March 1853-29 July 1890
Famous Artist- A Dutch Post- Impressionist painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western Art.
He only painted for about a decade.
In the last two years of that decade he painted most of the 2100 pieces he created.
Van Gogh lived a very complicated life and died tragically from suicide in 1890- and it was only after his passing that his paintings became famous.
What we are fascinated in is the way he captured the flowers in his art, like a photograph of how they looked back then, and the profoundly beautiful and bright colours that are famous in the world still to this day.
