Artists portrait of Vincent van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh

  • Born: 30. March 1853 in Zundert
  • Died: 29. July 1890
More myths and attempts at interpretation have ranked around Vincent van Gogh than probably any other of his painter colleagues. His fate is probably where the main attraction in van Gogh lies. Self-mutilation, lunatic asylum and eventually suicide are expressions of a deep crisis of identity, mentally as well as artistically. This crisis expresses itself in the dramatically increasing luminosity of his colours. It is a mixture of madness and genius that explains the fascination, still unbroken even after 100 years, that is triggered by the name van Gogh. Born on March 30th, 1853 in Zundert near Breda as the son of a clergyman, Vincent van Gogh studied theology in Amsterdam and later looked after workers in the coal- and bronze industries in the Walloon mining area as a minister and teacher. In 1883 he began to paint the farmers and labourers of his home district in earthy, heavy colours. In 1886 he moved to Paris where he came upon the cheerful and bright paintings of the Impressionists. After moving south to Arles in 1888 he created his famous landscape paintings, still lifes and portraits, that he painted in shining colours to give the maximum form of expression. Despite increasing periods of mental exhaustion and delusions his creative output was not restricted. After his last session with the doctor who was looking after him in Avers, Vincent van Gogh, the artist who overcame Impressionism and the one who paved the way for succeeding art directions committed suicide on July 29th 1890.
