VINCENT VAN GOGH
HOLLAND: A GENIUS POSTHUMOUSLY ACCLAIMED
BORN: 1853 DIED: 1890


Van Gogh -The GeniusAn incredulous world hear the news that on 30 March, 1987,Christis of London auctioned a painting of Van Gogh for the fabulous amount of Rs500,000,000. It was one of the seven sunflowers painted by this great artist during his sojourn in south France during January, 1889. This is supposed to be the highest price paid for any painting so far. As it is, most of the paintings by this artist now fetch millions of dollars.

Van Gogh’s life is an unending saga of want, poverty and mental tensions. No other painter led such a tragic life. He was cruelly neglected in his life time. Though he made hundreds of paintings, he could sell only one during his life. Now he is recognized as one of the classic masters like Rembrandt and others.

Vincent Willem Van Gogh was born on 30 March, 1853 in Holland. Son of a priest, he took to painting. He worked in London, Paris and The Hague. He suffered from bouts of depression due to poverty as also an unsuccessful love affair with an English girl. He divided his time between working at Brussels Academy and amongst farmers in Holland. During the last six years of his life he created some 700 sketches and 800 oil paintings. In return, he got nothing but penury and mental tensions.

In 1888 Gogh started working with Gaguin but soon their relations soured. In a fit of mental depression, Van Gogh cut his ear. Later, made a self portrait with bandage on the damaged ear. Van Gogh preferred bright colours. He was committed to an insane asylum, and not long after leaving it shot himself on the scene of his last painting the “Cornfield” on 27 July 1890 and died two days later. It is an irony of fate that he got ample measure of fame and recognition nearly a century after his death
