Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh (1853 – 1890) is considered one of the greatest of the Post-Impressionists. The bold colors, emphatic brushwork, and contoured forms of his work strongly influenced the Expressionist movement in modern art.
Van Gogh’s art became astonishingly popular after his death, especially in the late 20th century, when his works sold for record-breaking sums at auctions around the world and were featured in blockbuster traveling exhibitions. Partly because of his voluminous published letters, Van Gogh has also been mythologized in the popular imagination as the quintessential tortured artist.
