VAN GOGH's life is special and, although today it is his most paid painting in art history (82.5 million dollars for "Portrait of Dr. Gachet"), in life he only manages to sell one of his works.
He was born in 1853 in the south of Holland, the son of a severe Protestant priest. At 16 he left school to go to work in an art house, where he discovered the commercial side of art. He worked on the preparation of various exhibitions and the sale of many works, and during his frequent trips to London and Paris he came into contact with contemporary art.
At the age of 27 he became aware of his artistic vein, inspired in particular by the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works of Monet, Pisarro, Gauguin and others.
Although he was active as a painter for only ten years, as a self-taught artist Van Gogh produced more than 2,000 works, including some 930 paintings, and 1,100 drawings and sketches.
In 1890, at the age of 27, he died of suicide near Auverse.
