Vincent Van Going to Fail This Research Paper Vincent Van Gogh, a famous French artist painted throughout his life. Although Vincent Van Gogh was self taught, part of his success eventually resulted because of the influences in his life of his brother Theodorus, his nearly perpetual depression, and his time in a mental institution. One thing Van Gogh mastered was hiding his mental illness. His depression began during his two year stay in London. There he struggled was with the living situation he was in. For months he cut off communication with family, renounced any connections with his social life, and adapted a gloomy lifestyle. It wasn't until Vincent became more passionately involved in religion that he began to cheer up. He lost all interest in his art career and spent the next four years reacting to his calling, a preacher. As a result the church dismissed him. Again this lead Van Gogh to depression. He questioned how he could be of any use to the world. Finally, at the age of 27, he realized art was a good direction and began producing work. For a while everything seemed to be moving at a constant and stable pace. While vincent was visiting home, he fell for his widowed cousin Kee.

She also explained how he stuck to a certain schedule, and it was not until July 27, 1890 that Van Gogh broke his routine. She wrote how he never came back till very dark, and when he did arrive there seemed to be something very wrong. Worried, her father entered Van Gogh's room to find him wounded due to shooting himself. He explained to the man how he was painting in a wheat field when he pulled out a revolver and shot himself in the torso. Although the wound was not fatal, Vincent fainted and did not wake till hours later. Although he did make it back to the Inn, he only lasted two nights and died
Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Post-Impressionist painter from March 30th, 1853 to the time of his early death in July 29th, 1890. He was a Dutch artist who traveled between Hague, London, and Paris where he created some of his best works of art. One of van Gogh’s famous starlit night sky paintings was the Starry Night Over the Rhone. The canvas that van Gogh chose to paint his famously recognized piece of art was constructed using an oil base paint on a 28.5 inch by 36.2 inch canvas. Oscar-Claude Monet, also a Impressionist painter, was born on November 14th, 1840 and passed away on December 5th, 1926. Monet lived in Giverny where he painted various different landscape projects that later became subjects of some of his best-known works. Considered to be one of Monet’s “most poetic expressions,” Impression, Sunrise is illustrated using oil paints on a 18.9 inch by 24.8 inch canvas. Van Gogh’s and Monet’s paintings are similar to each other in that they are both maritime paintings,
...ded after his death, it was Artaud that claimed, “No, Van Gogh is not crazy, he was pushed to suicidal despair by a society which rejected his works.” Whether or not Artaud’s theory is correct, Vincent Van Gogh was in fact very ill and his paintings are famous for how lucid they are in illustrating the way his mental illness affected him. Van Gogh’s post-impressionist style is very unique of the late 19th century in France and most of his work was done with impasto technique as a way of expression. It is recognizable that his illness had a larger impact on his paintings’ subject matters than the style they were painted in. Vincent Van Gogh’s fame mostly came after his death, and while his paintings did help him to express himself, they now live on to visually translate the true, unwritten stories of his life and the effects paintings have with a mental illness.
he had troubles with finances, he had familial issues, and he had issues in his romantic pursuits. But, instead of letting himself be crushed under the weight of his troubles, he took a stand and created beautiful paintings out of it.
...t suffering any additional attacks) and in mid-June Van Gogh produced his best known work: Starry Night. Under the care of a sympathetic doctor, whose portrait he painted (Dr. Gachet, 1890, Louvre, Paris), van Gogh spent three months at Auvers. Just after completing his ominous Crows in the Wheatfields (1890, Rijksmuseum Vincent van Gogh), he shot himself on July 27, 1890. Vincent van Gogh died at 1:30 am on July 29th. The Catholic church of Auvers refused to allow Vincent's burial in its cemetery because Vincent had committed suicide. The nearby township of Méry, however, agreed to allow the burial and the funeral was held on July 30th.
On July 27, 1890, Vincent Van Gogh somehow got a hold of a gun. He went out to the country at the place he was staying at and shot himself in the upper abdomen. He walked up to his room and laid by himself bleeding to death, just like he had done after cutting off his ear.
Vincent Van Gogh was born in Holland in 1853 and died in an asylum at saint-Remy in 1890. As his father was a minister he was brought up in very religious and cultured surroundings and was a man of deep religious belief. Van Gogh tried many jobs unsuccessfully and his career as an artist lasted only 10 years from 1880 – 1890. In 1886 Van Gogh moved to Paris to stay with his brother Theo, with whom he had a very close relationship and whose unfailing financial support allowed Van Gogh to devote himself entirely to painting. Theo was an art dealer and through him Vincent met the impressionists Pissarro, Monet and Gauguin. The influences of these men caused him to move away from more formal painting, to experiment with, and develop, new techniques, to lighten the colours he used and to paint in the short brush strokes of the Impressionists. As well as this he was also influenced to paint using tubes, enabling him to paint ‘en plein air’. All things Japanese were very fashionable in Paris at the time and Van Gogh copied the style of Japanese prints in their use of strong outlines and large flat areas of colour, visible in the backgrounds of some of his portraits. Van Gogh moved to Arles in the south of France in February 1888; this was his ‘golden year’. He loved Arles and the bright light which seemed very beautiful to him. While there, Van Gogh lived in ‘The Yellow House’ and later when he invited Gauguin to stay he decorated his room in a series of his famous yellow sunflowers.
In present time, Vincent van Gogh is probably the most widely known and highly appreciated person of postimpressionism. During his brief lifetime, Vincent’s work went almost unknown to this world. His work now hangs in countless museums throughout the world and is considered priceless. His work became an important bridge between the 19th and 20th centuries.
Vincent was an influential post-Impressionist painter born in 1853, Netherlands. With Theo van Gogh’s association, Vincent met reputable Impressionist painters such as Émile Henri Bernard and Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin. Impressionism served as a platform for Vincent in developing his own style . He explored with colours, a stark contrast from his usual dark and sombre style. The influence of Japonisme charmed Vincent into residing in Arles where he began painting landscapes. Thereafter, Vincent voluntarily checked into Saint-Rémy sanatorium where his works reflected strong colours and lights of the countryside around him. His manic depression and epileptic condition, led to his suicide on July 27th 1890.
...acks and reactive depression that caused bipolar disorder. Looking over the course of his life it would seem evident that there were definitely some mental issues going on. These issue that pushed Vincent Van Gogh to commit suicide at the age of 37.
In December of 1888, Vincent Van Gogh had been living with a fellow artist and friend, Paul Gauguin. They lived in “Yellow House”; the house that Vincent rented and had painted a picture of in September of that year. On the December 23, Van Gogh approached Gauguin with a razor blade and then left Yellow House in a panic and fled to a local brothel. This led Vincent to cut off part of his ear, which he then gave to a prostitute (Wikipedia, Rita Wildegans, 2007). Vincent spent 3 days unconscious in the hospital after that night and was released back home on January 7, 1889 (Jen Green, 2002).
Vincent Van Gogh is one of the world’s greatest and most well-known artists, but when he was alive he considered himself to be a complete failure. It was not until after he died that Van Gogh’s paintings received the recognition they deserved. Today he is thought to be the second best Dutch artist, after Rembrandt. Born in 1853, he was one of the biggest artistic influences of the 19th century. Vincent Van Gogh created a new era of art, he learned to use art to escape his mental illness, and he still continues to inspire artists over 100 years later.
He was born March 30, 1853 in the village of Groot Zundert, Netherlands. Van Gogh works began to improve by learning new colors and techniques for his works. His palette brightened and tones became less serious. ‘Upon meeting Pissarro, Gauguin, and a few of the other artists, he became fascinated by their focus on light and color’. As a painter, he suffered from depression so he realized he prefers to live in small warm and quiet towns. In 1888, He moved to the village of Arles in the south of France, where the weather was warmer and had less people than in Paris. Here he was able to enjoy the sun most of the year. Most of his time was spent painting scenes of the French countryside. Later that year, Gauguin came to stay with Van Gogh at his cottage in Arles. At first, they got along well together talking about their various artistic techniques and painting pictures in the countryside but as the weather started to become cooler, they had to spend more time inside which put a strain on their relationship. Van Gogh began having dark moods and violent temper tantrums which led to having heated arguments between himself and Gauguin. Their arguments grew worse when Van Gogh attacked Gauguin and attempted to kill Gauguin. After viewing Van Gogh insane by slicing off his own ear, Gauguin left the village and never
Vincent left the asylum in 1890 and made contact with Theo. He worked at a feverishly creating a new painting almost daily. He could not see his life as anything but “horribly wasted, personally failed and impossible.” He shoots himself in the chest July 27, 1890 but dies a lengthy two days later from the
