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!!!
