van Gogh Art Work

Vincent Van Gogh strove to convey his emotional and spiritual state in each of his artworks

Van Gogh did his paintings by squeezings his tubes of oil paint directly on the canvas.

His brushwork became broader and more expressive and his vision of nature more lyrical. Everything in these pictures seems to be moving, living.

In despair of ever being able to overcome his loneliness or be cured, van Gogh shot himself. He did not die immediately. When found wounded in his bed, he allegedly said, “I shot myself.…I only hope I haven’t botched it.” That evening, when interrogated by the police, van Gogh refused to answer questions, saying, “What I have done is nobody else’s business. I am free to do what I like with my own body.”
