Why is Van Gogh so famous nowadays?
During his lifetime (March 30, 1853 – July 29, 1890), Vincent van Gogh hardly sold any of his paintings. Although he remained poor and unknown throughout his life, his work highly influenced 20th-century art. Van Gogh struggled with mental illness. But his art helped him to stay somewhat emotionally balanced. He died in France when he shot himself in the chest. Today, Van Gogh is considered the greatest Dutch painter after Rembrandt. Van Gogh created more than 2,100 works. Various of his paintings nowadays rank among the most expensive in the world.
