Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890)

Born in 1853 in Zundert, a village in the southern part of the Netherlands, as the son of a clergyman, he aspired to become a clergyman, but he failed.He relied on his younger brother Theo, who was an art dealer, to go to Paris, and eventually to Arles in the south of France.He started living together with his best friend Gauguin in an atelier, but it broke down in two months.He died at the age of 27 by taking his own life in Auvers-sur-Oise. 

It is 4 pieces, the repeated cultivation consisting of 3 pieces described afterwards first that "the Sunflower" described the popular name which is going to do cohabitation with Gauguin to respect to decorate the atelier of "the yellow house" before Gauguin comes. For Gogh, the flower of the Sunflower is the sun and a symbol of the light, and it is reliable to have been the existence that is higher than a simple flower. It was the short painter life called 10 years, but, as "a painter of the Sunflower", the work is loved by many people.
