Vincent van Gogh
Vincent van Gogh was a Dutch painter, generally considered to be the greatest after Rembrandt van Rijn, and one of the greatest of the Post-Impressionists. He sold only one artwork during his life, but in the century after his death, he became perhaps the most recognized painter of all time.
Vincent van Gogh is remembered for both the striking color, emphatic brushwork, and contoured forms of his art and for the turmoil of his personal life. In part because of his extensive published letters, Vincent van Gogh has been mythologized in the popular imagination as the quintessential tortured artist. With his illness exacting an increasing toll on his daily activities, the last months of Vincent van Gogh's life were nevertheless his most productive.
Amid gradually increasing recognition for his work, he entered a period of extreme fruitfulness during his final 60 days on earth. 'Wheatfield with Crows' is believed to be the last work of Vincent van Gogh.
