Gogh, Vincent van

Gogh, Vincent van (1853 - 1890).
Generally considered the greatest Dutch painter after Rembrandt. With Cézanne and Gauguin the greatest of Post-Impressionist artists.
His work, all of it produced during a period of only 10 years, hauntingly conveys through its striking colour, coarse brushwork, and contoured forms the anguish of a mental illness that eventually resulted in suicide.
