ART·spiration: Vincent van Gogh

Today we are inspired by Vincent van Gogh! Born on this day in 1853, Van Gogh was a Post-Impressionist painter best known for his use of color and line to create truly unique landscapes and still lives. In his lifetime he produced more than 2,100 artworks, including 860 oil paintings and more than 1,300 watercolors, drawings, sketches and prints. While he only sold a single painting in his lifetime, his painting style still continues to be monumentally inspirational to this day.

 Many films have tried to tackle his life and paintings. Check these out if you are looking for a few:
