You might know the name Van Gogh, but do you know who he really was?
The man who painted Sunflowers
Vincent van Gogh is one of the most famous and influential artists in history.
He produced some of the most recognisable and popular art in the world.
He lived during an incredibly exciting period in the history of art and
played an important role in the development of the art movement known
This painting is very famous. Look at its bright yellows and the
way each of the fourteen sunflowers are painted differently.
Van Gogh painted Sunflowers for the room in the yellow house
he was renting in Arles, France. His friend, the painter Paul Gauguin,
was coming to visit and Van Gogh wanted to redecorate.
Van Gogh is famous for his self-portraits. No one knows exactly how
many he created, but over 40 can be seen in museums and galleries
around the world today.
He used self-portraits as a way of practising portraits without having
to pay models to sit for him.
Today, most people know the name Vincent van Gogh. However,
when he was alive, he was not very famous at all. Since his death,
he has become one of the most successful painters in history.
People across the world have admired his unique style. If you
look closely at his paintings, the brushstrokes are broken up.
It is as if you can see each time Van Gogh put his brush on the canvas.
Do you like this style? What strikes you about his style?
In total, Van Gogh made around 2,100 artworks. So, if you only know
Sunflowers, there are many more paintings by him to discover

To make your pictures different, alter things like:
Choose background colours that reflect different moods. Try:
One of his most famous paintings shows him just weeks after he has cut off part of his ear. The bandage looks like it is on the wrong ear because he painted his self-portraits while looking in the mirror. Although every portrait is different, van Gogh used some common elements in all of them, such as a serious, intense gaze and his distinctive red hair.
End of the day
Have a relaxing evening.
