Vincent Van Gogh and the Colors that Drove Him
Well before Vincent became an artist, he was fascinated by the cycles of nature and human life as well as the cycles of the day. When he began to paint, he gave these different times, and the activities associated with them, a solid place in his work. He is considered the greatest Dutch painter after Rembrandt and one of our most beloved artists.
