Vincent Van Gogh
Cursed and misunderstood artist, sensitive and tortured mind, Vincent Van Gogh (1853–1890) has become a legend. Deemed unclassifiable, he nevertheless belongs to the post-impressionist movement, just like his friend Paul Gauguin. With his lively palette and exalted touch, he also appears as a precursor of Fauvism and Expressionism while approaching symbolism through his mystical conception of art. An indefatigable painter who died at the age of 37, he produced more than 800 paintings. Combining reflections on form and color, Vincent Van Gogh's approach perfectly embodies the genius of modern art.
