Vincent van Gogh is perhaps the most mythologized artist in the history of art and his tragic life is ingrained in the popular imagination. Active as an artist for only ten years he completed 1250 paintings, before succumbing to mental illness and taking his own life in July of 1890. Van Gogh was a deeply spiritual man and began painting after witnessing the desperate poverty of the agricultural communities of Holland and Belgium. He developed a highly individualistic visual style, and strived to develop an expressive language more direct than that of his artistic predecessors. Although he sold only one painting during his lifetime, his enormous rise to fame after his death means that today his are among the most cherished paintings of all the great artists. Works featured in this program include The Potato-Eaters, Sunflowers, Vincent's House in Arles, Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear, The Starry Night, and Wheat Field with Crows.
