A Dutch Post-Impressionist artist was Vincent van Gogh. His early adult life was spent working in a firm of art dealers. He used to be an educator before he became a missionary worker in a helpless mining area. He did not give much attention to art and painting until he was in his late twenties. At first, he only made use of somber colors. His style in painting had transformed when he already gained a concept on Impressionism and Neo-Impressionism. He learned these concepts when he was in Paris.
Equipped with the knowledge an artist should have aided with his creative mind, he was able to make an output out of a combination between sober and bright colors. As a result, his style in painting was uniquely recognizable. He was able to produce 2000 works which included 900 paintings and 1,100 drawings and sketches. All of these were done during his last ten years of his life. Most of his great works were done in his last years. During this time, the artist was suffering mental illness which led to his suicide.
