Vincent Van Gogh was born in Groot-Zundert, Holland on March 30, 1853. He died in Auvers-sur-Oise, France in May 1890. He was an impressionist painter. Van Gogh was not happy all of his life. He had bipolar disorder and depression. He was born in Holland, went to study in Belgium, and moved to France where he lived most of his life. Van Gogh had two brothers. One was Theo Van Gogh, the manager of an art gallery in Paris and Vincent Van Gogh, who died at birth. My favourite work by Van Gogh is "Starry Night". I like it because the colours are bright, I like the village in it, and the quick brush strokes.
