Year 3 – Van Gogh
Name: Vincent Van Gogh
Style: Amazingly, Van Gogh did not start a career as an artist until 1880, ten years before he died. Van Gogh is famous for taking the style of impressionism from Paris and adapting it by using brighter colours and a style of painting that is uniquely recognizable as his.
Famous Pieces of Art: He produced more than 2000 works, including around 900 paintings and 1100 drawings and sketches during the last ten years of his life. Most of his best-known works were produced in the final two years of his life, during which time he cut off part of his left ear following a breakdown in his friendship with Paul Gaugin. Perhaps his most famous painting is his Still Life: Vase with 12 Sunflowers.
