Discovering the Magical World of Van Gogh

Hallo! My name is Vincent, Vincent Van Gogh. You surely have seen me before: I am that Dutch artist with the red head who painted landscapes and portraits with a sense of turbulence. Maybe you have seen some of my famous sunflowers, but did you know that… While I was alive, I was not able to sell even one of my paintings? Did you know that when I was young, I wanted to be a priest? Do you know who Theo was? Do you know what role Dr. Gatchet played in my life? Through these pages I invite you to discover and understand why my life was marked by passion, solitude and poverty.

Misunderstood in his time, Vincent Van Gogh is today one of the most admired and loved painters. He didn’t follow the strict pictorial rules of his time but developed a universe of his own, filled with colour and movement. He was a very humane and sensible man that found in Art a way to express his emotions and show his love for life.
