According to Theo, Vincent's last words were: "The sadness will last forever". Van Gogh was buried on 30 July, in the municipal cemetery of Auvers-sur-Oise. Theo had been ill, and his health began to decline further after his brother's death. Weak and unable to come to terms with Vincent's absence, he died on 25 January at Den Dolder , and was buried in Utrecht.
There have been numerous debates as to the nature of Van Gogh's illness and its effect on his work, and many retrospective diagnoses have been proposed. The consensus is that Van Gogh had an episodic condition with periods of normal functioning. The gun van Gogh was reputed to have used was rediscovered in and was auctioned, on 19 June , as "the most famous weapon in art history".
Vincent’s Italian Cuisine was founded in 1989 by native New Orleanian Vincent Catalanotto.
Van Gogh drew, and painted with watercolours while at school, but only a few examples survive and the authorship of some has been challenged. In early , his uncle, Cornelis Marinus, owner of a well-known gallery of contemporary art in Amsterdam, asked for drawings of The Hague. Van Gogh's work did not live up to expectations. Marinus offered a second commission, specifying the subject matter in detail, but was again disappointed with the result.
Van Gogh persevered; he experimented with lighting in his studio using variable shutters, and with different drawing materials.

Later, they were recognised as early masterpieces. In August Theo gave Vincent money to buy materials for working en plein air. Vincent wrote that he could now "go on painting with new vigour". He had some of them photographed, but when his brother remarked that they lacked liveliness and freshness, he destroyed them and turned to oil painting.
Vincent van Gogh
Van Gogh turned to well-known Hague School artists like Weissenbruch and Blommers , and received technical advice from them, as well as from painters like De Bock and Van der Weele , both of the Hague School's second generation. The Potato Eaters and its companion pieces are the only ones to have survived. Theo criticised The Potato Eaters for its dark palette, which he thought unsuitable for a modern style.
Van Gogh came to believe that the effect of colour went beyond the descriptive; he said that "colour expresses something in itself".

He used yellow as a symbol for sunlight, life, and God. Van Gogh strove to be a painter of rural life and nature,  and during his first summer in Arles he used his new palette to paint landscapes and traditional rural life. Van Gogh stayed within what he called the "guise of reality",  and was critical of overly stylised works. Between and his death in , Van Gogh appears to have been building an oeuvre ,  a collection that reflected his personal vision, and could be commercially successful. He was influenced by Blanc's definition of style, that a true painting required optimal use of colour, perspective and brushstrokes.
Van Gogh applied the word "purposeful" to paintings he thought he had mastered, as opposed to those he thought of as studies. With their broad brushstrokes, inventive perspectives, colours, contours and designs, these paintings represent the style he sought. Van Gogh's stylistic developments are usually linked to the periods he spent living in different places across Europe. He was inclined to immerse himself in local cultures and lighting conditions, although he maintained a highly individual visual outlook throughout. His evolution as an artist was slow, and he was aware of his painterly limitations.
He moved home often, perhaps to expose himself to new visual stimuli, and through exposure develop his technical skill. The portraits gave Van Gogh his best opportunity to earn. He believed they were "the only thing in painting that moves me deeply and that gives me a sense of the infinite. The portraits of his mother were from photographs.
In December he painted La Berceuse — a figure that he thought as good as his sunflowers. It has a limited palette, varied brushstrokes and simple contours. The portraits show a shift in style from the fluid, restrained brushstrokes and even surface of Portrait of the Postman to the frenetic style, rough surface, broad brushstrokes and use of a palette knife in Madame Roulin with Baby. Van Gogh created more than 43 self-portraits between and The self-portraits reflect an unusually high degree of self-scrutiny. It is one of his most renowned self-portraits of that period, "with its highly organized rhythmic brushstrokes, and the novel halo derived from the Neo-impressionist repertoire was what Van Gogh himself called a 'purposeful' canvas".
They contain a wide array of physiognomical representations. Some show him with full lips, a long face or prominent skull, or sharpened, alert features. His hair may be the usual red, or at times ash coloured. Van Gogh's gaze is seldom directed at the viewer. The portraits vary in intensity and colour, and in those painted after December especially, the vivid colours highlight the haggard pallor of his skin. He can be seen with bandages in portraits executed just after he mutilated his ear. In only a few does he depict himself as a painter.
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Self-Portrait , National Gallery of Art , Washington, D. Self-Portrait Without Beard , c. September This painting may have been Van Gogh's last self-portrait. He gave it to his mother as a birthday gift. Van Gogh painted several landscapes with flowers, including roses, lilacs , irises , and sunflowers.
Some reflect his interests in the language of colour, and also in Japanese ukiyo-e.
The first was painted in Paris in and shows flowers lying on the ground. The second set was completed a year later in Arles, and is of bouquets in a vase positioned in early morning light. In these series, Van Gogh was not preoccupied by his usual interest in filling his paintings with subjectivity and emotion; rather the two series are intended to display his technical skill and working methods to Gauguin,  who was about to visit.
The paintings were created during a rare period of optimism for the artist. Vincent wrote to Theo in August , "I'm painting with the gusto of a Marseillais eating bouillabaisse, which won't surprise you when it's a question of painting large sunflowers If I carry out this plan there'll be a dozen or so panels.
The whole thing will therefore be a symphony in blue and yellow. I work on it all these mornings, from sunrise. Because the flowers wilt quickly and it's a matter of doing the whole thing in one go. The sunflowers were painted to decorate the walls in anticipation of Gauguin's visit, and Van Gogh placed individual works around the Yellow House's guest room in Arles. Gauguin was deeply impressed and later acquired two of the Paris versions. Today the major pieces of the series are among his best known, celebrated for the sickly connotations of the colour yellow and its tie-in with the Yellow House, the expressionism of the brush strokes, and their contrast against often dark backgrounds.
Neue Pinakothek , Munich. Irises , Paul Getty Museum , Los Angeles. Almond Blossom , Fifteen canvases depict cypresses , a tree he became fascinated with in Arles. In mid, and at his sister Wil's request, Van Gogh painted several smaller versions of Wheat Field with Cypresses. During the last six or seven months of the year , he has also created at least fifteen paintings of olive trees, a subject which he considered as demanding and compelling. In these works natural life is rendered as gnarled and arthritic as if a personification of the natural world, which are, according to Hughes, filled with "a continuous field of energy of which nature is a manifestation".
Cypresses in Starry Night , a reed pen drawing executed by Van Gogh after the painting in Wheat Field with Cypresses , The 14 paintings are optimistic, joyous and visually expressive of the burgeoning spring. They are delicately sensitive and unpopulated. He painted swiftly, and although he brought to this series a version of Impressionism, a strong sense of personal style began to emerge during this period.
The transience of the blossoming trees, and the passing of the season, seemed to align with his sense of impermanence and belief in a new beginning in Arles. During the blossoming of the trees that spring, he found "a world of motifs that could not have been more Japanese". During this period Van Gogh mastered the use of light by subjugating shadows and painting the trees as if they are the source of light — almost in a sacred manner. In the vivid light of the Mediterranean climate his palette significantly brightened.
Orchard in Blossom, Bordered by Cypresses , April View of Arles, Flowering Orchards , Van Gogh made several painting excursions during visits to the landscape around Arles. He made paintings of harvests, wheat fields and other rural landmarks of the area, including The Old Mill ; a good example of a picturesque structure bordering the wheat fields beyond.
Many of the late paintings are sombre but essentially optimistic and, right up to the time of Van Gogh's death, reflect his desire to return to lucid mental health. Yet some of his final works reflect his deepening concerns. Van Gogh was captivated by the fields in May when the wheat was young and green. His Wheatfields at Auvers with White House shows a more subdued palette of yellows and blues, which creates a sense of idyllic harmony.
About 10 July Van Gogh wrote to Theo of "vast fields of wheat under troubled skies". Wheat Fields , early June After Van Gogh's first exhibitions in the late s, his reputation grew steadily among artists, art critics, dealers and collectors. His work was shown in several high-profile exhibitions, including six works at Les XX ; in there was a retrospective exhibition in Brussels. Theo died in January , removing Vincent's most vocal and well-connected champion.
Influenced by Van Gogh, Matisse abandoned his earth-coloured palette for bright colours. Van Gogh's fame reached its first peak in Austria and Germany before World War I ,  helped by the publication of his letters in three volumes in Bacon was inspired by an image he described as "haunting", and regarded Van Gogh as an alienated outsider, a position which resonated with him. Bacon identified with Van Gogh's theories of art and quoted lines written to Theo: "[R]eal painters do not paint things as they are Van Gogh's works are among the world's most expensive paintings.
Van Gogh's nephew and namesake, Vincent Willem van Gogh — ,  inherited the estate after his mother's death in During the early s he arranged for the publication of a complete edition of the letters presented in four volumes and several languages. He then began negotiations with the Dutch government to subsidise a foundation to purchase and house the entire collection. The project began in ; architect Gerrit Rietveld was commissioned to design it, and after his death in Kisho Kurokawa took charge. In it had a record 1. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
