Art and literature
Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890), was a man
in a hurry , an artist of tremendous (???)energy
and prodigious output(???) . He killed himself
when he was only 37 , but he left behind him more
than 2,000 paintings and drawings , which
established(??) his reputation(??) in a way he
would never have considered possible .
His early works show his desire to express the
hard and poor life of people, such as Potato
Eaters and Dark. Later he was influenced by the
work of the impressionists(?????) and by the work
of some Japanese printmakers. He began to
experiment with current techniques(?????) and use
the bright colors. His other works include
Bedroom at Arles, Starry Night, Crows in the
Wheat fields, etc.

Qi Baishi (1864--1957),of Hunan Province,
traveled around the country on his earlier years,
selling paintings and carving (??)seals(??) to
make a living. He settled down in Beijing at the
age of 57, and gradually his style of painting
began to change. Combining traditional freehand
brushwork and folk art, he produced a unique
form centering on flowers, birds, insects, and
fish. Simple and bold, each colorful painting was
achieved with only a few strokes. In his later
years he focused(??)on calligraphy(??)and seal
carving and served in the early 1950s as chairman
