One of the most original artists ever who devoted himself and his feeling in his paintings, that is the reason why his paintings are so passionate and so incomparable, included some of the world’s best-known, most popular and most expensive pieces.
Van Gogh encountered Impressionism and Neo-Impressionism in Paris.
He incorporated their brighter colours and style of painting into a uniquely recognisable style, which was fully developed during the time he spent at Aries, France.
He produced more than 2,000 works, including around 900 paintings and 1,100 drawings and sketched, during the last ten years of his life.
Van Gogh is a pioneer of what came to be known as Expressionism. He had an enormous influence on 20th-century art, especially on the Fauves and German Expressionists.
Van Gogh lived more than 115 years ago, and yet his artwork is still having a strong influence of today the way mankind views beauty, persona, individuality, and style in art.
