Ridiculed during his own lifetime, Vincent van Gogh’s paintings have added transcendant beauty to ours.

After struggling with mental illness his entire adult life, he died at the age of 37 of a gun shot wound, thought to be self-inflicted.

He is now recognized as one of the most influential artists of all time.

I put my heart and soul into my work, and have half lost my mind in the process.  Vincent van Gogh
