Fun Fact of the day:
Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh is among the most influential figures in Western art. Like many other artists, appreciation for his work came after his death in 1890, and he spent much of his short life struggling through poverty.
Van Gogh sold one painting while he was alive, The Red Vineyard at Arles, for 400 francs in Belgium, several months before his death. In 1990 — 100 years later — his Portrait of Dr. Gachet sold for close to $150 million.
The Red Vineyard at Arles, which Vincent van Gogh was said to have been unusually pleased with, is the only work he sold during his lifetime, and was bought for 400 francs by Anna Boch (1848-1936).
