Van Gogh Self Portrait with Grey Felt Hat, c.1887

The brilliant artwork of post-Impressionist Dutch Master Vincent Van Gogh powerfully impacted countless artistic movements. Producing all of his works within a decade, Van Gogh's output in just one year totaled 150 paintings and drawings. Van Gogh painted outdoors with a special talent for capturing the subtleties of nighttime light and shadow. He suffered from lifelong bouts with mental illness yet created many of his masterpieces while institutionalized. Selling only one painting during his lifetime, Van Gogh has endured as one of the last century's most influential artists.

"I want to touch people with my art. I want them to say 'he feels deeply, he feels tenderly.'" ~ Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Willem van Gogh (30 March 1853 - 29 July 1890) was a Dutch Post-Impressionist artist. His paintings and drawings include some of the world's best known, most popular and most expensive pieces.

Van Gogh spent his early adult life working for a firm of art dealers. After a brief spell as a teacher, he became a missionary worker in a very poor mining region. He did not embark upon a career as an artist until 1880. Initially, van Gogh worked only with sombre colours, until he encountered Impressionism and Neo-Impressionism in Paris. He incorporated their brighter colours and style of painting into a uniquely recognizable style, which was fully developed during the time he spent at Arles, France. He produced more than 2,000 works, including around 900 paintings and 1,100 drawings and sketches, during the last ten years of his life.¹
