Post-impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh was a huge influence on developments in 20th century art. He however did not live to see his artistry recognized and during his life only a single work was sold. At the age of 37, the lonely artist committed suicide driven to despair by a destructive psychological affliction. After a decade of prolific drawing and painting he left behind a substantial oeuvre which provided an important stimulus to artistic movements such as Fauvism and Expressionism.
