Great work of Vincent van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh, one of the most well-known post-impressionist artists, for whom color was the chief symbol of expression, was born in Groot-Zundert, Holland on March 30, 1853. Vincent van Gogh was primarily a self-taught artist. He started his career copying prints and studying drawing manuals with the belief that a great painter had to first master drawing. He created over 1,000 drawings, 150 watercolors, 10 graphic works, 9 lithographs and an etching, not to mention his 900+ paintings in his short career. Van Gogh was a post-impressionist painter whose work, notable for its beauty, emotion and color, highly influenced 20th century art.

This is widely known as Van Gogh's most famous painting. It is a great example of how Van Gogh uses light. He contrasts the bright stars with the dark town below.
This is a painting of Van Gogh's real life bedroom. It is a very personal painting in which his own art is hung on the walls. The colors are specifically chosen to create a feeling of rest and sleep.
This painting is one of a couple walking through the woods. This painting stood out to me because of the two people alone in the woods. Bright flowers and high grass brush across their legs.
Painting of a corn harvest in a big corn field. You can see small homes are what looks like a barn off in the distance. The unique brushstrokes a clear blue sky is what drew me to this piece of work.
Van Gogh created this portrait of his own doctor, Dr. Paul Gachet. He was chosen because he assisted other famous artists during this time period, and would appear to be the best suited for Van Gogh.
When Van Gogh chose to go to the asylum, he created very many paintings. This was from his first week there while he was working in the garden.
This is a self-portrait of Van Gogh while he is at work as an artist. Van Gogh has painted at least 36 self portraits, but this is one is his first work after his severe breakdown in July 1889.
Van Gogh created this painting just a short while before his death. His distorted lines create a more unrealistic effect on the painting. He intended to create the illusion of an earthquake.
Fritillaries are bulbs which, like tulips, flower in spring. It is therefore easy to work out what time of year Van Gogh painted this picture.
