Artist Of The Week: Vincent Van Gogh!

Artist Of The Week: Vincent Van Gogh!

Self Portrait by Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh is one of history’s most iconic and celebrated artists. With masterpieces such as Starry Night and the Sunflowers, his work is perhaps the most recognisable in popular culture.

Van Gogh was born in Holland in 1853, and his work was in the Post-Impressionist genre. Not widely recognised during his life time (selling just one painting), Van Gogh’s life was marked by trauma and unhappiness.

Nowadays his work is recognised and celebrated for its energetic and expressive use of colour and brushstrokes. You can find out more about him from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

We could say more about why we love his work (and our guests love him too – Paint Starry Night is our most popular event!), but we think his paintings speak for themselves. That’s why we’ve been featuring his work as our Artist Of The Week this week.
