Celebrating the life of Vincent van Gogh

Celebrating the life of Vincent van Gogh

July 29, 2023

Today marks the anniversary of Vincent Van Gogh’s death, so we are taking the opportunity to remember his life and work.

Vincent van Gogh, born on March 30, 1853, in Groot-Zundert, Netherlands, did not begin painting until the age of 27. Over the next 10 years, he painted with such furious devotion that he completed, on average, one new artwork every 36 hours.

Throughout this time, though, he also struggled with illness and loneliness. Van Gogh's relentless pursuit of artistic excellence, coupled with the challenges he faced, created a complex narrative that would shape his life, art, and legacy.

Despite his artistic genius, van Gogh's works were under-appreciated during his lifetime. Battling mental anguish and financial hardship, he lived in relative obscurity and endured loneliness. It was only after his death on July 29, 1890, that his art gained widespread recognition—thanks to the work of Johanna van Gogh-Bonger, his sister-in-law.

Although van Gogh's life was marked by personal hardships, his art remains a testament to the power of creativity and resilience. Van Gogh's legacy transcends time and continues to captivate and inspire art enthusiasts worldwide.

We continue to pay homage to the memory of this great artist with our squared versions of his work: you can take a look at them here.
