Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890)
The Bedroom, 1889
Over the course of just ten years, Vincent van Gogh produced more than two thousand drawings and paintings. As he struggled against madness, he created works of genius. Shimmering with light and color, saturated with the intensity of his vision, they resound throughout the world of art.
Van Gogh can be seen as the quintessential starving artist: for all the reverence with which we now view his work, in his lifetime he sold only one painting.
