in the history of European painting, Van Gogh’s story is more attractive than Van Gogh’s art.
Van Gogh’s paintings were not valued by the society before his death.
In his whole life, he only sold one painting.
All his life, he relied on his younger brother Theo to provide for his living expenses.
After his death, later generations gave him various honors, and the selling price of his paintings rose step by step.
Because of this, Van Gogh is a painter who has exhausted his life to create, crazy pursuit of true love and true feelings, without secular affectation! Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) was a major painter of late impressionist painting in Europe at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century.
Van Gogh is Dutch.
He was born in a peasant family in 1853.
His father was a country priest.
His two uncles were art dealers.
Van Gogh’s start in art first came from his uncle’s store.
Xiao Fangao has beautiful red hair, but his appearance is ugly.
He has a very strange temper.
He doesn’t like to communicate with others, but he is emotional.
He is rude, capricious and shy.
One of his uncles has a shop in Paris and London, which is engaged in a large art transaction, and plans to let Van Gogh inherit his business in the future.
Van Gogh also went to stores in London and Paris because of business.
At this time, he was a diligent young man with a bright future, but later he lost hope due to the setback of personal events and was no longer interested in work.
Van Gogh began painting at the age of 27, determined to be a peasant painter, and his figure paintings mostly depict the working people.
Some of his early paintings represented by the potato eater depict the poor life of farmers.
Later, he left the countryside to work in the coal mine, so he drew the workers.
Later, when he came to Paris, he came into contact with Impressionism, and then painted landscapes and the life of the lower class of the city.
Whether painting farmers, workers or the urban poor, Van Gogh, like Bruegel and Miley, started from the spirit of humanitarianism.
His father and several uncles were missionaries.
He himself believed in religion.
Only after he was dismissed as a worker’s representative in the mine did he doubt the existence of God.
Van Gogh sympathized with the poor from Jesus’ universal love, but he could only help the poor with his poor food and share a piece of black bread with them.
In addition, he used paintings to depict the poor life and hard work.
He painted these paintings not so much to promote ideology as to express what he wanted to express in his heart.
He sold only one painting in his life.
Few people could see his paintings at that time.
Van Gogh’s paintings were not understood by people at that time, which doomed him to live a wandering and miserable life all his life.
Van Gogh’s wandering life is closely related to his works.
Traveling can usually bring him new inspiration.
From 1869 to 1876, when Van Gogh worked as an art reproduction commodity clerk, he often argued with many customers who lacked art cultivation because he insisted on not selling good paintings.
When he was a temporary priest in the borenaki mining area, Van Gogh, who witnessed the poor life of miners, helped the workers and their families pick up coal even though he was in rags.
The mining workers respected him as an angel of God, but his superiors thought that such a style was degrading the dignity of the preacher and expelled him from the church.
His innocent and evil personality can’t adapt to the society.
When living in the Netherlands, Van Gogh painted the lives of many miners and painted them with gloomy colors.
In 1886, he moved to Paris where his brother lived and began to work.
During this time, he wrote many touching letters to his brother about his life and works.
After knowing Pissarro, hinek, Gauguin, Bena and others, his creation has gradually changed.
Emotionally, Van Gogh was also hit by love all his life.
Even with a kind heart, his almost ugly appearance, stubborn character and reckless behavior in emotional impulse make the women he pursues fear him.
In 1883, a 39 year old Magadi finally fell in love with Van Gogh.
However, due to the resolute opposition of the woman’s parents, Magadi committed suicide.
Although she attempted suicide, Van Gogh was abandoned by the society and had to leave sadly.
Van Gogh’s series of self portraits reflecting real life is to expose the inner uneasiness in the process of wandering.
The color is bold and free, which can just show his personality.
The characteristic of these works is that the background is decorated with yellow, green, blue and light purple tones, creating a sense of jump.
In addition, they also try to depict the tension of agitation and oppression with graphite, pencil, charcoal and watercolor.
Van Gogh had a rough road in life and feelings, so he had to vent his inner feelings in painting.
Therefore, we can see that his works are characterized by enthusiasm and bold and strong strokes.
All his life, Van Gogh had no friends.
Only his brother Theo can understand and love him.
However, Van Gogh still yearns for pure and beautiful friendship from the bottom of his heart.
He has traveled alone to Antwerp, Brussels and Eden and continued to learn painting with passion.
At that time, he was living a sad wandering life like a wild dog.
At the age of 33, he went to Paris and lived with Theo.
After that, for nearly two years, Van Gogh was very weak because of poverty and overwork.
Following his brother’s advice, he rented a house in Al in southern France.
There, Van Gogh created many wheat fields glowing under the scorching sun and burning flat cypresses.
Soon, he met Gauguin, who was very speculative.
In order to draw together, he called Gauguin to Al and spent more than two months together.
But the good times didn’t last long.
One day, Van Gogh had a mental attack and the two had a quarrel.
Gauguin proposed to go back to Paris.
Van Gogh was very sad and attacked Gauguin with a razor that day.
Although Gauguin was not injured, he was surprised and ran away.
The next day, he sneaked back and saw that the ground was covered with blood.
Van Gogh cut off one of his ears and fainted to the ground.
He wrapped his ear in paper and said he would take it to his acquaintances.
This is the end of their friendship.
Later, Van Gogh’s mental illness often occurred periodically.
People sent Van Gogh to the prison of the city for a period of time.
After his illness slowed down, according to his hope, he went to the St.
Remy’s madhouse, took a room there as a studio, and went in and out freely to paint the nearby mountains and fields.
After living in a lunatic asylum for nearly a year, he was incompatible with the real lunatic.
It was obvious that it had a new impact on his mind.
Theo was worried about the situation, asked Dr.
Orwell on the outskirts of Paris to take Van Gogh in, so Van Gogh continued to paint a lot while conducting private diagnosis and treatment.
Illness haunted him from time to time, and he painted many suffocating things.
Sometimes he drank a bucket of paint and ran wildly through the town.
However, this is also a relatively happy time in his life.
His paintings began to be praised by the art critics, and some people also wanted to buy his works.
He made his last sprint, painting endless fields, small towns and fields.
In a letter to his brother Theo, he said, “I’ll give you all the money and I’ll start my own destiny.
” Finally one day, he had a premonition that the severe pain was approaching.
He picked up his pistol, leaned against the tree, pointed the muzzle of the gun at his heart, and muttered, “pain, I will leave you forever.
” A few days ago, he held his nephew and smiled happily, but now he has closed his eyes forever.
At this time, Van Gogh was thirty-seven years old.
