All literature writers have their own style of writing and works that cause their fame; however, few literary writers write their books with the purpose to illustrate a region of their country.

He was a post-impressionist artist responsible for “his own more bold and conventional style” (“Van Gogh Gallery”). He is, of course, most famous for his painting, “Starry Night.” Van Gogh was known to be “highly emotional, lacking self-confidence, and struggling with his identity and direction” (“Van Gogh Gallery”). When he finally decided to pursue art, he had already endured many hardships. He had gone through two unhappy relationships and worked unsuccessfully as a bookstore clerk, an art salesman, and a preacher, where he was “dismissed for overzealousness” (“Van Gogh Gallery”). Throughout his entire career as an artist, he only sold one painting. He lived in poverty, and suffered from severe malnourishment and sleep deprivation. All of his sufferings sent him spiraling into “fits of madness and lucidity,” which ultimately placed him the Saint-Remy institution after cutting off his own earlobe in attempts to murder his friend and fellow artist, Gaugin (“Van Gogh Gallery”). Van Gogh’s anguish heavily influenced his art. His “fusion of form and content is powerful; dramatic, lyrically rhythmic, imaginative, and emotional,” because he was “completely absorbed in the effort to explain either his struggle against madness or his comprehension of the spiritual essence of man and nature” (“Van Gogh Gallery”). Without his struggles and his pain, Vincent Van Gogh could not be the prominent artist that he has become. His inventive style,
Instead, Van Gogh eventually gained the Shakespearean elevated character through his beautiful works of art. Throughout his early life Van Gogh wasn’t popular and “was able to sell only one painting before he died”(1). He completed “more than 2,100 works, consisting of 860 oil paintings and more than 1,300 watercolors drawings and sketches”(4). Van Gogh’s brother Theo tried to sell his artwork for the duration of his life but was always turned down. Shortly after Van Gogh’s suicide, Theo also died of syphilis, and correspondingly, the hope of Van Gogh gaining recognition vanished (4). Moreover, many of his paintings were either destroyed or lost when he died. It is even noted that Van Gogh’s own mother had thrown away “crates full of his art” for reasons unknown (4). However, Theo’s wife, Johanna, adored her brother in law’s art and collected as many pieces as she could when he died (4). In 1901, 71 of Van Gogh’s best works were put on display for a Paris show, and almost 11 years after his death, his fame skyrocketed (4). Today, Van Gogh is revered as one of the greatest Dutch artists to live. Although he spent his early life unappreciated, Van Gogh attained the Shakespearean “nobility” through his magnificent paintings, drawings, and sketches he left behind after his
