Van Gogh was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. He painted in oils using thick heavy brushstrokes that defined his art.
His famous paintings include 'Starry Night,' 'Still life of Sunflowers in a Vase,' and 'Cafe Terrace at Night.' Aside from a few of his famous paintings, what he is known for is being the 'crazy artist who chopped his ear off.'
Van Gogh suffered from psychotic episodes and delusions and though he worried about his mental stability, he often neglected his physical health, did not eat properly and drank heavily. When in a rage, he severed part of his own left ear...hence being known as the artist who chopped off his own ear!
