Vincent Van Gogh !

Vincent Willem Van Gogh was a dutch painter and in fact the most famous modern painter in history.  He was born in 1853 and brought up in Nearbreda , Netherlands.  

At first , when he started, he had little rocognition.  Vincent had been working in his family buisness for a long time and only sold ONE painting in his life time ! The 
“Red vineyard at arles.” He worked for his uncle as a art dealer,  and his brother Theo.  



through out the year he died , killing him self  from a gunshoot wound , to his mid section and with his brother Theo along side of him .  His sister in-law decided to sell his painting because she thought it was worthy enough too!  It was then , she was shocked from how many eyes the paintings Vincent Van Gogh painted , attracted people to buy them. One of his painting was sold for over 80 million dollars.  AMAZING!!!



That was the story of Vincent .
