Vincent Willem van Gogh (1853-1891)

The gifted Dutch Post-Impressionist artist, Vincent van Gogh, had his life shattered by mental illness. Vincent van Gogh suffered from Bipolar I Disorder at a time in history when there was no treatment for this common disorder. Tragically, van Gogh died of suicide. Today, mental illnesses can be successfully treated; hence we can now prevent these tragic suicides. In memory of Vincent van Gogh, we display his art on this website.
