Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A colorist whose signature work reflected his personal struggle with madness, Vincent Van Gogh found little praise for his art during his lifetime, and with little self-confidence and plagued by depression and unhappy personal relationships, took his life when he was 37 years old. 

He was born in Holland to a family of culture and religious conviction reinforced by the father who was a pastor.  Van Gogh worked as a bookstore clerk, a preacher and an art-store salesman (showing 500 of 2265 characters).
