Vincent van Gogh

Today Vincent van Gogh's pictures stand the whole conditions, however he managed to sell only one (the vineyard image in Arle) for four hundred francs shortly before the death in 1890

Living in penury, it found happiness in painting, giving vent to the soul on a canvas. Vincent van Gogh was influenced by some artists, including Edward Manet, Ogjust Renoir and Kamil Pissaro who have rejected a fashion of that time to draw models in stuffy studio and took out the easels on an open-air to embody a life such as it is. Other artists sneered at them and named them "шьяЁхёёшюэшё=рьш" (from fr. "impression" - impression). Bright and large dabs with which they wrote the cloths, gave to their works sensation of movement and a life.

Van Gogh has gone further away. He gave more attention to transfer of feelings, rather than exact copying of forms. Many years after it name "яюё=-шьяЁхёёшюэшё=юь" as it has appeared after impressionists, together with other artists creating at the same time: Paul Gauguin, the Field Cezanne, George Sera and Edgarom Degas.
