Vincent Van Gogh
Vincent van Gosh was born 30th March 1853. He died on the 29th July 1890. He was born in Groot-Zundert, Netherlands.
Van Gogh was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. In just over a decade he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of them in the last two years of his life in France, where he died.
His art work includes landscapes, still life, portraits and self-portraits, and are characterised by bold colours and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art.
In a confrontation with a friend, he severed part of his own left ear with a razor.
