One of, if not, the most important and most influential artists of the 19th-century died, Vincent van Gogh
He worked in London at first, moved to Paris once, and then studied theology in Holland, before he began painting. It was in 1880 that he started, taking instruction in anatomy and perspective and moving to Antwerp where he studied at the Academy. His work was influenced by Degas, Gauguin, Seurat, Toulouse-Lautrec, Japanese woodcuts, and broadly humanistic. In 1888 he moved to Arles, where he lived in poverty, sold no works and suffered from depression and hallucinations. Living permanently on the verge of clinical insanity and after a quarrel with Gauguin, he cut off part of his ear, evident in "Self-portrait with Bandaged Ear", London, Courtault Institute Galleries. He is greatly responsible for the line of decent to the Abstract Expressionism of the 1940s and 1950s -1890
