Fu autore di quasi novecento dipinti e più di mille disegni, senza contare i numerosi schizzi non portati a termine,e i tanti appunti destinati probabilmente all'imitazione di disegni artistici di provenienza giapponese. Tanto geniale quanto incompreso in vita, Van Gogh influenzò profondamente l'arte del XX secolo. Dopo aver trascorso molti anni soffrendo di frequenti disturbi mentali, si suicidò all'età di 37 anni.In quell'epoca i suoi lavori non erano molto conosciuti né apprezzati...
🇺🇸Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Dutch painter.
He was the author of nearly nine hundred paintings and more than a thousand drawings, not counting the numerous sketches not completed, and the many notes probably destined to the imitation of artistic drawings of Japanese origin. As genial as it is misunderstood in life, Van Gogh profoundly influenced 20th century art. After spending many years suffering from frequent mental disorders, committed suicide at the age of 37. At that time his works were not very known or appreciated.
