    VINCENT WILLEM VAN GOGH (30 March 1853 - 29 July 1890) was a Dutch Post-Impressionist artist whose work, notable for its rough beauty, emotional honesty, and bold color, had a far-reaching influence on 20th-century art. His paintings and drawings include some of the world's best known, most popular and most expensive pieces. He spent his early adult life working for a firm of art dealers. After a brief spell as a teacher, he became a missionary worker in a very poor mining region. He did not embark upon a career as an artist until 1880. Initially, VAN GOGH worked only with sombre colours, until he encountered Impressionism and Neo-Impressionism in Paris. He incorporated their brighter colours and style of painting into a uniquely recognizable style, wich was fully developed during the time he spent at Arles, France. He produced more than 2000 works, including around 900 paintings and 1100 drawings and sketches, during the last ten years of his life. He died at the age of 37 from a gunshot wound, generally accepted to be self-inflicted. analopetegui@terra.es
