Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh Dutch Master Post Impressionist painter and mad man. Talk about a true artist to the bone. He was poor as can be yet kept on painting with a speed and ferocity never seen before. He would create several masterpieces in a single day. There is something strange something different about this brilliant man and his works. His drive and passion to continue when he could not afford food he lived on coffee with cream and sugar to survive. His brother an art dealer Theo could not sell a Vincent Van Gogh his own brothers work.

He was way ahead of his time and ours. His colors were brash and strokes thick and rough compared with the pristine pastels of the Impressionists like Claude Monet and Pissaro before Vincent. He created many self portraits, landscapes and flower works like the famous Iris

We have a collection of his works as well as other masters like Vincent van Gogh, Salvador Dali, Leonardo da Vinci, Andy Warhol and many others.

Today he is one of the most expensive artists in the world to acquire a piece from.
