8 Van Gogh Quotes on Art, Life and Love

by Team FUCCHA

  Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) was a Dutch painter who sold only one painting in his entire life. His life was miserable, and his artistic skills remained unappreciated until much after his death. Vincent’s paintings were mostly vivid landscapes. Through his rapid brushstrokes and bold use of colour, he captured momentary lapses in time and the changing directions of light... His brother Theo supported him financially. He wrote to him extensively. Vincent was mentally unstable. He cut off his ear after threatening his friend and fellow painter, Paul Gaugin in 1888. He checked himself into and asylum in 1889, moved out to live with a doctor in 1890 and shot himself in the chest a few months later. His work gained attention in the 20th century, with the rise of art movements such as Fauvism and expressionism. Today, his paintings are a legacy.
