Vincent Willem van Gogh (1853-1890) was a Dutch post-Impressionist painter whose work, notable for its rough beauty, emotional honesty and bold color, had a far-reaching influence on 20th-century art. After years of painful anxiety and frequent bouts of mental illness, he died at age 37 from a gunshot wound, generally accepted to be self-inflicted (although no gun was ever found). His work was then known to only a handful of people and appreciated by fewer still. He was buried in Paris.

Vincent van Gogh: Milk Jug. September, 1862. Info from The Kroller-Muller museum. The artist's signature is early -- after some time he signed using only 'Vincent' because people mispronounced his last name. Van Gogh received the milk jug from his brother Theo and he used it in a number of works.
