In his short 37 years on earth, Dutch Post-Impressionist master Vincent van Gogh created over 2,100 artworks. This included nearly 900 oil paintings, most of which were created during the last 2 years of his troubled life. It is widely known that the artist struggled with mental illness and poverty throughout his life, and his work is a raw and expressive illustration of this. In his paintings he explored various subjects including landscapes, his most famous being The Starry Night in MoMA, NY’s collection, along with portraits , self-portraits , and still lifes . These striking works are all characterized by the artist’s use of bold colors and dramatic and passionate brushstrokes. The resulting images are imbued with a movement and radiance and changed the history of art and laid the foundation of modern art. While his style is easily recognizable, the depth of his extensive portfolio is still being explored. McGaw Graphics has continued to discover and add new widely unknown van Gogh works to our museum poster collection including pastoral landscapes and sepia drawings along with the iconic cypress trees and bedroom images. During his turbulent lifetime he was considered a failure, having only sold one painting. Now, nearly 130 years after his death, his impact on future generations of artists is almost incalculable.
