Born 30 March 1853 – Vincent van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890), a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter whose vibrant colours and swirling brushstrokes continue to resonate with art lovers today, was born on March 30, 1853, in Zundert, Netherlands. Despite facing personal struggles throughout his life, van Gogh produced an incredible volume of work, including over 860 oil paintings, in a relatively short period.

His most recognizable works, like “Sunflowers” and “The Starry Night,” were created during the last two years of his life, a period marked by intense creativity and emotional turmoil. Tragically, van Gogh never achieved widespread recognition in his lifetime. He died by suicide on July 29, 1890, at the age of 37, in Auvers-sur-Oise, France. However, his influence on modern art is undeniable, and his paintings are now celebrated around the world for their emotional depth and groundbreaking use of colour.
