Vincent Van Gogh: Portrait of an Artist (Jan Greenburg) - Vincent van Gogh–one of the 19th century’s most brilliant artists–will forever be remembered as the Dutchman who cut off his ear. But this incident only underscores the passion that consumed him–a passion that, when he took up painting at age 27, infused his work. Whether painting a portrait, a landscape, or a still life, Van Gogh sought to capture the vibrant spirit of his subject. It didn’t matter that others found his work too unconventional. Van Gogh persevered. And as he moved from the cold climate of Holland to balmy southern France, he pioneered a new technique and style. In a career spanning only a decade, Van Gogh painted many great works, yet fame eluded him. This lack of recognition increased his self-doubts and bitter disappointments. Today, however, Van Gogh stands as a giant among artists. Recommended for ages 9-12.

Vincent Van Gogh (30 Mar 1853 - 29 Jul 1890) - Vincent Van Gogh’s art work is among the most recognizable in all the world, and yet it’s ironic that he sold only one painting during his lifetime. Although his work barely got a chance to circulate since he cut his own life short at the age of 37 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, they would soon be discovered and admired for their intense emotion and vivid colors. Influenced by the impressionists after moving the France, Vincent produced his finest work in the last years of his life; works that departed from the conventions of the day. He suffered from mental illness which also likely influenced his work, and he is also known for cutting off a portion of this left earlobe (and giving it to a prostitute for safekeeping). Regardless of his own demons, Van Gogh gave the world some of the most important works of arts, including “The Starry Night”, his many self-portraits and those of flowers (irises and sunflowers). You don’t have to be a snobby art appreciator to understand the beauty of his works.
