Van Gogh is historically significant because he brought about new ideas and ways of making art.

Starry Night was painted in June of 1889 and is his most famous piece.

"I dream of painting and then I paint my dream."

The Red Vineyard was the first and only painting sold during Van Gogh's lifetime.

After finishing boarding school, Van Gogh went on to be an art trader at Hague Gallery. He then moved on to be missionary for the poor. He was very passionate about it but he got very bored and in need of excitement. He decided to resign to be an artist.
