Fact of the Day: Picky Audience!

Did you know that Vincent Van Gogh produced more than 2,000 works during his life but only sold one painting while he was alive?



Working at an often furious pace van Gogh produced more than 2,000 works of art, including around 900 paintings and 1,100 drawings and sketches in his 10-year career. However, he sold only one painting during his lifetime and did not become successful until after his death. Some of his most famous works include ‘Starry Night’, ‘Sunflowers’, and’ The Bedroom at Arles’. His expressive and emotive use of color and distinct brushwork became hugely popular and massively influenced Expressionism, Fauvism and early abstraction as well as various other aspects of 20th-century art. Today, van Gogh is generally regarded as the greatest Dutch painter since Rembrandt.
