Vincent van Gogh - between genius and madness

Vincent van Gogh, born in 1853 in Groot-Zundert, Netherlands, was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter known for his intense and emotionally charged works. In 1880, he began his career in the art world as an assistant to an art eagle in The Hague. But his true destiny lay in art, and in 1886 he moved to Paris to pursue his passion.

There he made connections with his brother Theo, who provided financial support and enabled Vincent to create some of his most famous works, such as The Starry Night. His time in Arles, France, marked a period of high creative productivity, but was also marked by personal difficulties, including the famous incident in which he cut off part of his own ear after a conflict with Paul Gauguin.

In 1889, he was committed to the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole mental institution in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence for mental problems. Sadly, Vincent van Gogh's life was ended early by his suicide in Auvers-sur-Oise, France, in 1890. Despite his personal difficulties, his work left an indelible mark on the world of art and continues to inspire generations of artists and art lovers.
