Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Dutch painter who posthumously became one of the most famous and influential figures in Western art history. He was born on March 30, 1853, in Zundert, Netherlands and died on July 29, 1890, in Auvers-sur-Oise, near Paris, France. He created about 2,100 artworks in a decade, including around 860 oil paintings.
Van Gogh’s work powerfully influenced the current of Expressionism in modern art. His striking colour, emphatic brushwork, and contoured forms are some of his most notable features. Van Gogh’s work was characterized by bold colors and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art. His most famous works include “The Starry Night,” “Sunflowers,” and “Café Terrace at Night”.
