Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) was a Dutch painter regarded as one of the greatest painters the world has ever seen. His paintings have immensely contributed to the foundations of modern art. He is thought to have lived with either bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, with his depression ultimately leading to his suicide. (Photo by Victor Morin, 1886.)
