Life & Artistic Evolution

  • In his early life, he wanted to be a church pastor, but he quickly discovered his passion for art and painting.

  • Though there has been speculation about the extend of Van Gogh’s illness, he was undoubtedly troubled mentally and often physically too.

  • He spent several years at a mental institution.

  • His early work was different in that his color palette was darker and more muted, and his brushstroke less noticeable.

  • That all changed when he met artists of the French Impressionism movement.

Van gogh s evolving self portraits

“I strongly urge you to study portrait painting, do as many portraits as you can and don't flag. We must win the public over later on by means of the portrait; in my opinion it is the thing of the future.”
