Vincent van Gogh was a Dutch artist whose work had a great influence on modern art, because of its striking colours and emotional power. Before deciding to become an artist, Van Gogh worked in a book store, an art gallery, and as a teacher, minister and even a missionary!
His earlier paintings were often somber or sad, with dark colors such as browns and dark greens. They were not popular. However, after encouragement from his brother, Theo, and meeting other artists in Paris, Van Gogh started painting in brighter colours and later on, with intensity and emotion.
