The artist chosen for this assignment is Vincent Van Gough. This artist is one of many that I personally admire, because he went through so much and having a mental disorder didn’t quite help the situation. What I find so amusing with the story of this artist is that his artworks weren’t considered as good works when he was still alive infect the majority always saw his works as badly done. But after his death not only that his works were considered as a master piece but he is one of the most sought out artist, in today’s artistic world. Who was Vincent Van Gough?, What was his story?, one might ask.
