Famous Painting

 

Vincent Van Gogh, more than any other Master Artist, symbolizes the tortured genius who must suffer for his creativity. While modern concepts of creativity reject this "romantic" myth of creativity born of suffering, the association between Van Gogh's art  and his life - long battle with mental illness and tragic suicide endures. However, the important thing about Van Gogh's work - what made it truly revolutionary - was his departure from  Impressionist (Monet, Renoir) - which was primarily a study of light - toward a new freedom to express emotion and inner states.  In the final years of his life, Van Gogh's emotions and inner turmoil fairly exploded on canvas with the use of intense, violent, swirling colors, and aggressive brush strokes that we associate with masterpieces such as Stary Night, Sunflowers, and Wheatfield With CrowsThis was a totally new way of seeing the world, and an entirely new mode of artistic expression. It earned Van Gogh a place in the history books, established him as a significant influence in the evolution of art, and made his paintings familiar and well - loved the world over. His magnificent Sunflowers sold at Christies for $43,000,000, at the time, the highest prices ever paid for a painting.
