Vincent Van Gogh
Vincent van Gogh (30 March 1853 – 29 July 1890) was a Dutch painter, generally considered to be one of the greatest. He sold only one artwork during his life, but in the century after his death he became perhaps the most recognized painter of all time. In just over a decade, he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings most of which date from the last two years of his life.
Some of Vincent van Gogh's most famous works are his Sunflower series. He painted a total of twelve of these canvases.
