Van Gogh's Life

Vincent Van Gogh. A very very famous artist, who created masterpieces. Vincent painted with very thick oil paint. He sometimes used a knife instead of a brush! And he would slap on the paint,but he drew great pictures with it.

Van Gogh had a very sad life. Most of the time he was angry. One time he had a fit of anger and then cut part of his ear off!!! Would you say that is weird???

In time Van Gogh had a flatmate. His name was Paul Gauguin, he is also a famous artist as well. Van Gogh painted sunflowers and placed four in Gauguin’s room. They became good friends, one day Paul left because they had a argument.

In 1890 Van Gogh died of la gunshot wound two days later. He actually killed himself.... Why would he do that??? I think that he was sad because Gauguin left him and he also would of died because the infection would of gone worst.

I picked my favorite pictures which Van gogh made.

This is Starry Starry Night

This is another...

And this is the last one.


  1. Very interesting post here Wyatt. It certainly sounds like he had a sad life. He does cope with things in a different way to most. You're right to say it's weird. It's great that you have the opportunity this term to learn about these famous poeple. They influence a lot of the art we see today. Keep it going!
