    is for a paper chart and contains no floss or fabric. This chart was inspired by the illustrations of Vincent Willem van
    Gogh, 1853 -1890, was a Dutch post-Impressionist painter whose work, notable for its rough beauty, emotional honesty,
    and bold color, had a far-reaching influence on 20th-century art. After years of painful anxiety and frequent bouts of
    mental illness, he died at the age of 37 from a gunshot wound, generally accepted to be self-inflicted (although no gun
    was ever found). His work was then known to only a handful of people and appreciated by fewer still. Following his first
    exhibitions in the late 1880s, van Gogh's fame grew steadily among colleagues, art critics, dealers and collectors.
    After his death, memorial exhibitions were mounted in Brussels, Paris, The Hague and Antwerp. In the early 20th century,
    there were retrospectives in Paris (1901 and 1905), and Amsterdam (1905), and important group exhibitions in Cologne
    (1912), New York (1913) and Berlin (1914). These had a noticeable impact on later generations of artists. By the mid
    20th century van Gogh was seen as one of the greatest and most recognizable painters in history. In 2007 a group of
    Dutch historians compiled the "Canon of Dutch History" to be taught in schools and included van Gogh as one of the fifty
    topics of the canon, alongside other national icons such as Rembrandt and De Stijl. Together with those of Pablo
    Picasso, Van Gogh's works are among the world's most expensive paintings ever sold, as estimated from auctions and
    private sales.
