To begin with,I'm going to talk about who Vicent Van Gogh was. Vicent William Van Gogh was born on 30th March, 1853 and he died on 29th July, 1890. Van Gogh, who was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter, is maybe one of the most famous figures in the history of Western Art. He created around 2,100 artworks in just 10 years in which he included landscapes, still lives, portraits, and self portraits.This painter also contributed to the foundation of modern art, which is an artistic movement during the period extending from 1960 to 1970.
If we went back to his childhood, we would see that Van Gogh had painted since he was two years old. He was serious, quiet and thoughful. However, he showed signs of mental instability, but he had never worried about this until he started to suffer psychotic episodes and delusion. In my opinion he wasn't too worried about it as he continued drinking heavily and not eating properly. His friendship with Gauguin, who was a French artist, ended when Van Gogh threatened him with a razor, and in a rage, cut off part of his own left ear. Afterwards, Van Gogh was admitted in a psychiatric hospital in Saint- Rémy until his condition stabilised, but just some time after leaving the hospital, on 27th July 1890, he shot hymself in the chest with a revolver as his brother a few weeks before told him thathe couldn't support him financially any longer. Van Gogh died definetely on 29th July from his injures.
