Vincent van Gogh
Genius and madness
Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890). Today his paintings are among the most expensive in the world. But, sadly, he spent his life in extreme poverty, financial deprivation and dependency.
An exceptionally talented artist, van Gogh's genius is today universally recognised as are his immortal paintings.
Sun Flowers - Van Gogh painted at least six similar panels for his own room, depicting sunflowers in front of a blue and yellow background.
Iris - The irises depicted are in the garden of the sanatorium of Saint-Rémy, where Van Gogh recuperated after a severe attack. This painting is untouched by the melancholy found in van Gogh's later works.
