About the Author
Although his works fetch record-breaking prices at modern auctions, Vincent van Gogh (1853–90) sold only a single
painting in his lifetime. The artist labored in obscurity, creating hundreds of paintings and more than 1,000 drawings
in the 10-year period before his suicide. His posthumous fame grew quickly, and his influence on Expressionism, Fauvism,
and other branches of modern art is beyond calculation.
