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.)
Vincent van Gogh, (Dutch, 1853–1890). The Flowering Orchard, 1888. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. The Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ittleson Jr. Purchase Fund, 1956 (56.13) | This is one of a series of fourteen blossoming orchard paintings. That it includes a scythe and rake makes it one of only two orchards that allude to human presence or labor. The motif and Van Gogh's stylized treatment are related to Japanese prints #spring
Self-portrait - Van Gogh ["Franco is more of a VAN GOGH, MONET creature; there is no sure fact of anything, and all must continue to be questioned; a philosopher. I am very much a scientist: point A leads to point B, and so forth-." -Asha *"Detours, Asha, detours." "And detours only lead to more chaos, as others have refused to take responsibility for their steps."
