Description

Vincent van Gogh, the second of six children, is born on march 30th 1853 in Zundert, a village in Brabant. He excels in languages, studying French, English and German. In March 1868, in the middle of the academic year, he abruptly leaves school and returns to Zundert. He does not resume his formal education.

His work is categorized as post-impressionism, an art movement following the nineteenth-century impressionism. Van Gogh’s influence on expressionism, fauvism and early abstraction was enormous, and can be seen in many other aspects of twentieth-century art. The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam is dedicated to the work of Van Gogh and his contemporaries.

Van Gogh is now seen as one of the great painters of the 19th century. However, this recognition came late. During his life he only sold just two painting, ironically nowadays there are waiting queues of more than an hour for the Van Gogh Museum.
