Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh ( 1853- 1890 ) was a unique artist who worked with a sense of urgency which often caused him a great deal of stress.As a post impressionist painter and one of the most famous artist,He was famed for his bold, dramatic brush strokes which expressed emotion and added a feeling of movement to his works. It´s thought that he often used paint straight from the tube (impasto) and in the 70 days leading up to his death, he averaged one painting per day.
