Vincent van Gogh's Birthday

Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter who posthumously became one of the most famous and influential figures in Western art history. 

In a decade, he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of which date from the last two years of his life.

Born: March 30, 1853, Zundert, Netherlands
Died: July 29, 1890, Auvers-sur-Oise, France

Periods: Post-Impressionism, Pointillism, Neo-Impressionism

Am quite thankful for the colors, the talent, the detail that we all find in Vincent's works.

If you'd like to read about Vincent, his childhood, adulthood, and his artwork, I suggest:

  1. #1 is a great fan. She has a number of favourites but one of her favourite favourites is Starry Night.

  2. MOL! So cool to see these interpretations of Van Gogh's work! MOL!!!!!
    Purrs, Julie

  3. These memes are brilliant, especially the Earaser that one really made me smile after such a rotten week, thank you xxx

  4. I am quite familiar with Van Gogh, and I adore those puns. Right up my alley! Starry Night is so classic that it's identfiable at a glance. Vincent was quite the character and, as is common for someone of his genius, he suffered greatly for it. We, on the other hand, are the beneficiaries.

  5. Too funny. On the more serious side, extraordinary artist, sad and troubled life, gone too soon. Recognized too late.

  6. Happy Birthday Vincent! Those are tooooo funny - LOL! I sure love Van Gogh art, absolutely amazing stuff.

  7. One of our Mom's favorite painters. He truly was one of a kind. Cute comedy - In France they pronounce his last name as "Goff" rather than "Go". It was so weird hearing it that way :-).

  8. Those were pretty darn cute, the eraser was pretty appropriate! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  9. The 'earaser' had me laughing. Good Heavens...

  10. Wow, that is so many paintings! The earaser is too funny.

  11. I like his paintings. One of my favorite episodes of Dr Who was the Van Gogh episode with the 11th doctor. (sigh-I know that makes me sound geeky!)

  12. Thank you for sharing this! Very cool.


Thanks for your comments; we LURV them! Purrr....
