  1. For a start, Vincent Willem van Gogh was born on 30th March in 1853 in Zundert, Netherlands and he died on 29 th July in Auvers-sur-Oise, a region of France. He was a famous Dutch painter. In his life time, he painted nine hundred pictures and more than one thousand six hundred drawings. He was the oldest of six brothers, his father was a Protestant pastor. From 1876, he worked as a teacher, assistant and employee of a bookstore, but none of these jobs lasted long. At this time he wanted to be like his father, a pastor, for this reason he moved to Amsterdam.

    Vincent devoted ten years to painting. In these ten years, he did very important works as "The Potato Eaters", "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" .....In many works of art, the suffering of the poor and the marginalized is reflected. In February,1888, he moved to Arlés to find a new inspiration in Japanese engravings. In his later years, Vincent suffered many nervous breakdowns that were reflected in his paintings.

    All in all, Vincent has been one of the most famous painters of the history. I think that he is the best of all because in only ten years of work, he has got a place in the history of art.
