2. Vincent Van Gogh Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh was born the son of Protestant minister. He adopted many different careers before finally devoting himself to painting. He was an employee of art dealers a language teacher, student of practical evangelism, and a missionary. In 1881, he first developed his work in the traditional Dutch style. In 1886, he moved to Paris where he encountered Impressionism. Van Gogh’s life was plagued by series of unrequited love stories and rocky friendships. The most notable of these were his obsession with a French prostitute, to whom he sent his dismembered ear, and also his tumultuous relationship with fellow artist Paul Gauguin. Mental illness, primarily schizophrenia and manic depression afflicted Van Gogh his entire adult life, resulting in frequent hospitalization and an early death. He produced some of his most famous pieces, including his Self-Portrait, in mental institutions in hospitals in Arles and Saint-Remy. After his release, he went to Auvers where he eventually shot himself and died two days later.

4. More info on Vincent Van Gogh Van Gogh was a troubled man, chopping part of his ear off in 1888 after an argument with his dear friend Paul Gauguin, and was deeply spiritual, even training for the ministry until 1880 when he realized that his true vocation was in painting in order to bring consolation to humanity. Sunflower pictures form only part of the portfolio of one of the greatest and most influential painters of all time. He was obsessed with color, and the uses it had to convey various emotions and expressions, and was most successful when using broad, swirling brushstrokes in his energetic paintings. Van Gogh sold only one canvas during his lifetime and died from the results of a self inflicted bullet wound.

5. Two more of Van Gogh's paintings Olive trees starry night

6. More information on the famous starry night. Starry night is one of Van Gogh’s most famous paintings. Many people know of this painting and usually have seen it on TV or in an art class.

7. Quotes from Vincent van Gogh "Nature always begins by resisting the artist, but he who really takes it seriously does not allow that resistance to put him off his stride; on the contrary, it is that much more of a stimulus to fight for victory."

8. Here are some interesting facts about Van Gogh's first painting was of poor people. In the beginning his paintings were dark and sad. He saw some Japanese paintings and he thought it was nice so he started painting colorful paintings. Van Gogh and his friend Gaugin lived together but argued a lot and one day Van Gogh was so angry he cut off his own ear. Van Gogh had a very unhappy life. He didn't decide to become a painter until he was grown up.

9. Some of his more famous works of art. In "The Starry Night" he made the stars seem like they're shining. In "Cypresses" the trees look like flames and it feels like the whole picture is moving. In "Olive Trees," he made the sun look really hot. You feel like you should put on sunglasses to look at it.

10. Why I did Vincent van Gogh I did Vincent van Gogh because he is a famous artist and I thought it would be nice to learn more about him and I already knew a lot about him.
