Vincent Van Gogh

 This Term our topic is Art Alive. One of the artists Room 17 is researching about is Vincent Van Gogh.

This Is what I have found out so far :

This Poor Dutch man had a sad life and suffered from depression. His feelings are shown in his paintings.

In a fit of anger and depression, he cut off part of his ear and sent it to his girlfriend,  but she did not like it.

He got lead poisoning because he used lead based paints and he suffered poisoning from nibbling paint chips. He often didn't have enough money to buy food because he spent what little he had on buying paints.

Van Gogh got only a little money for one of his  paintings while he was alive. When he died millions of people then realized that he was an awesome painter. His work is now worth millions of dollars.

This painting is called Starry Starry Night , and it is very well known.

I like this painting too, its called Almond  Blossoms.

Now this last painting is my favourite, it is a self portrait of Van Gogh.
