Quick Facts: Van Gogh
Vincent had an older brother who died at birth. His name was also Vincent van Gogh.
Van Gogh was close friends with Paul Gauguin, another famous artist.
Van Gogh suffered from temporal lobe epilepsy as well as other mental and physical conditions.
Vincent shot himself in a wheatfield in Auvers, France but did not die until 2 days later at the age of 37.
Vincent’s brother Theo died six months after Vincent and is buried next to him in Auvers, France.
Vincent’s brother’s wife collected Vincent’s paintings and letters after his death and dedicated herself to getting his work the recognition it deserved.
In a short period of ten years Van Gogh made approximately 900 paintings.
Vincent was exposed to impression artists like Monet, Renoir and Manet only after he moved to Paris in 1886. This is when he started experimenting with colours and adapted his trademark broken brushstroke.
Vincent only sold one painting during his lifetime and only became famous after his death.
Vincent van Gogh did not cut off his ear. He only cut off a small portion of his ear lobe during a fight he had with Paul Gauguin.
Van Gogh created his most famous work The Starry Night while staying in an asylum in Saint-Remy-de-Provence, France.
Vincent’s earliest career aspiration was to be a pastor in the Dutch Reformed Church like his father.
Van Gogh wrote over 800 letters in his lifetime. The majority of them written to his brother and closest friend Theo.
As a young man, Vincent fell in love with his cousin, and that became th main cause of the rift between Vincent and his family.
