Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) was a Dutch post-impressionist painter. Although today he is highly regarded, during his lifetime he received little recognition and only sold one painting. His sunflower series may be his most popular work, but he was prolific, completing more than 800 paintings in ten years.
