Title: Vincent van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh
  • Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Dutch
    post-Impressionist painter whose work, notable
    for its rough beauty, emotional honesty, and bold
    color, had a far-reaching influence on
    20th-century art. After years of painful anxiety
    and frequent bouts of mental illness, he died at
    the age of 37 from a self-inflicted gunshot
    wound. His work was then known to only a handful
    of people and appreciated by fewer still.

  • Van Gogh loved art from an early age. He began
    to draw as a child, and he continued making
    drawings throughout the years leading to his
    decision to become an artist. He did not begin
    painting until his late twenties, completing many
    of his best-known works during his last two
    years. In just over a decade, he produced more
    than 2,000 artworks, consisting of around 900
    paintings and 1,100 drawings and sketches. His
    work included self portraits, landscapes, still
    lifes of flowers, portraits and paintings of
    cypresses, wheat fields and sunflowers.

  • Simple at first glance "Sunflowers" in no
    way is the traditional still-life. A simple vase
    and flowers, drawn thick strokes, seem to be
    convex, the game shades of yellow and brown
    reflects a painful. Amazing for the fledgling
    expression of the opinion of the surrounding
    world, transmitting the artistic genius of the
    beauty of simple things, in the full sense is
    characteristic of Van Gogh.

  • One of the last works of Van Gogh,
    "Self-portrait with pipe and a bandage on his
    ear, was created them already at the point of
    mental illness, in the years of the life in
    Arles. During one of the attacks of rage, he
    threw himself on Gauguin, who was friends with,
    with a razor, and then in a fit of remorse the
    same razor cut off his ear, which sealed in an
    envelope and sent to one of the local brothel.

  • He soon returned to normal life and once
    again began to draw in his works of that time it
    is impossible to detect any trace of insanity.
    "Self-portrait with pipe and a bandage on his
    ear", created in February, 1889., can be called
    truly a masterpiece of objectivity. In this
    picture are obvious art the strength of his
    talent and clarity of mind. The gray-blue tone of
    the eyes, a look which is full of grief, is
    reinforced by an orange-red background. This
    self-portrait shows the highest level of skill
    and sincerity of the artist he displays himself
    as he is, tired, confused man.
