Showcase: Vincent van Gogh

Dutch Post-Impressionist painter who created some 2100 works. Considered to be among the most influential artists of all time. He only sold one painting during his lifetime. Famous for cutting his ear off, being misunderstood and marginalized all his life to become a genius after his death.

The Red Vineyard, the only painting he sold during his lifetime.

Of course, out of his many masterpieces, there’s one that has become synonymous with the artist.

The Starry Night. One of the most recognizable works of art.

  1. One of my favourite artists. Have you seen Loving Vincent? It’s an animated film that brings his paintings to life. Entirely hand-drawn.
