Vincent Willem van Gogh (1853-1890) was a Dutch painter who produced an excess of two thousand artworks during the last decade of his life after becoming an artist at twenty-seven. He devoted his artistic endeavour to painting and drawing nature, portraits and still life in a post-impressionist style of which Vincent was a pioneer. Van Gogh suffered from depression and struggled to find his true calling in life where he would pursue a meaningful career. Even though his works are today considered masterpieces, Vincent was not commercially successful as an artist during his time. He lived in poverty but continued his vocation thanks to his brother and art dealer, Theodorus van Gogh, who supported him financially.
