One time when he got upset he cut part of ear off and sent it to his girlfriend. She didn’t like it though so she sent it back.
Van Gogh died at the age of 37 from a gunshot. He shot himself after he had done the Sunflowers painting. 2 days later he died.
Vincent Van Gogh was normally very hungry because he would spend all his money on paint. He got really unhealthy and sick.
This man drew and painted lots of paintings. They were based on his feeling and his emotions. Most of the time he was angry and upset.
While he was alive all of the art he did were worth nothing because no one really liked it. After he passed away everyone started to realise how good his work was. Nowadays people would pay millions to have his artwork.
