The Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh is a key figure in the Post-Impressionist movement, laying the foundations for modern art. Despite selling only one painting in his lifetime, he's now regarded as one of the greatest modern European artists, known for the paintings 'Sunflowers' and 'The Starry Night'.
Overall I like the painting and the presentation. However I am a little disappointed with the brightness of the colour which I expected to be more subdued since it was sunset..It was a blaze of glory which I suppose was the effect Van Gogh wanted. It is hanging proudly on my wall.
