Vincent Van Gogh was born in1853 and died in1890 in Auvers-sur-Oise.
Vincent Van Gogh is a post-impressionist artist that wasn’t recognized until his death. In fact, the only person that bought his paintings was his brother.
Now his paintings are worth millions and some of them are known all over the world, like “Sunflowers” and “Starry night”.
A lot of people believe he was schizophrenic and in one of those attacks he cut off his own ear. One of his paintings comes from that but no one could ever prove that he had that mental illness.
In my opinion, the only proof that we have is that he is a genius, and we can see that by looking at his amazing paintings.
