He was born in Zundert, The Netherlands on March 30 ,1853 and he died on July 29 ,1890 at the age of 37 His painting are one of the most treasure object in the world today. Vincent went to school in Zevenbergen and studied French, English and German , he spooked four languages and he was well-read. Due to family financial difficulties, at the age of 15 he was forced to leave school and to go to work. He worked hard as a digger, then he became a missionary worker in a very poor mining region in The Netherlands and afterwards he worked in a big French art dealers company “Goupil & Co” in The Hague, Holland. He did not embark upon a career as an artist until 1880 at the age of 27. Van Gogh was the son of Anna Carbentus and Theodorus Van Gogh, who was a minister of the Dutch Reformed Church.

  28. 28. Theodorus "Theo" Van Gogh Was a sharp-witted and enlightening Brother We would all like to have a brother like Theo (1 May 1857 – 25 January 1891) He was a successful art dealer. He was the youngest brother of Vincent van Gogh. Theo's unfailing financial support allowed his brother to devote himself entirely to painting. Theo always accompanied and helped Vincent. Theo admired his elder brother, probably he was the only one who admired Vincent in his lifetime. But communicating with him proved to be difficult, even before Vincent opted to follow his artistic vocation. Theo was often concerned about Vincent's mental condition and he was among the few who understood his brother. 28 10/13/2013
  29. 29. Medical records Van Gogh cut off the lobe of his left ear during some sort of seizure on 24 December 1888. Mental problems afflicted him, particularly in the last few years of his life. During some of these periods he did not paint or was not allowed to. There has been much debate over the years as to the source of Van Gogh's mental illness and its effect on his work. Over 150 psychiatrists have attempted to label his illness, and some 30 different diagnoses have been suggested. Vincent van Gogh's medical condition Diagnoses which have been put forward include schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, syphilis, poisoning from swallowed paints, temporal lobe epilepsy and acute intermittent porphyria. Any of these could have been the culprit and been aggravated by malnutrition, overwork, insomnia, and a fondness for alcohol, and absinthe in particular. 29 10/13/2013
  30. 30. Medical records Still Life with Absinthe (1887)Medical theories have even been proposed to explain Van Gogh's use of the colour yellow. One theory holds that Van Gogh's colour vision might have been affected by his love of absinthe, a liquor that contains a neurotoxin called thujone. High doses of thujone can cause xanthopsia: seeing objects in yellow. However, a 1991 study indicated that an absinthe drinker would become unconscious from the alcohol content long before consuming enough thujone to develop yellow vision. Another theory suggests that Dr. Gachet might have prescribed digitalis to Van Gogh as a treatment for epilepsy. There is no direct evidence that he ever took digitalis, but he did paint Gachet with some cut flower stalks of Common Foxglove, the plant from which the drug is derived. Those who take large doses of digitalis often report yellow-tinted vision or yellow spots surrounded by coronas (like those in the The Starry Night) and changes in overall colour perception. 10/13/2013 30
  31. 31. Medical records A recently proposed illness is lead poisoning. The paints he used were lead-based, and one of the symptoms of lead poisoning results in a swelling of the retina, which may have led to the halo effect seen in many of Van Gogh's later works. It has been suggested that Van Gogh suffered from the brain disorder hypergraphia. This is a manifestation of another disorder that appears as a near constant, overwhelming urge to write. The disorders it is most commonly associated with are mania and epilepsy 31 10/13/2013
  32. 32. Summary of his medical records: Most of his best-known works were produced in the final two years of his life, during which time he cut off part of his left ear following a breakdown in his friendship with Paul Gauguin. •Diseases: •Schizophrenia, •bipolar disorder, •syphilis, gonorrhea , •poisoning from swallowed paints, (lead-plumbum)., •temporal lobe epilepsy , •acute intermittent porphyria , •Ménière's disease, •Sunstroke •been aggravated by: •malnutrition, •overwork, •insomnia, and • a fondness •for alcohol, and absinthe. •absinthe is a liquor that contains a neurotoxin called thujone. High doses of thujone can cause xanthopsia: seeing objects in yellow. (colour vision might have been affected) . •He suffered recurrent bouts of mental illness. 32 10/13/2013
  33. 33. The death of Vincent Van Gogh  The popular belief is that he shot himself in the chest.  A new theory on the death is that he did not commit suicide and was in     33 fact shot by a teenage boy. The theory contradicts the accepted version of events, which holds that Van Gogh shot himself in a field in France. Staggering more than a mile back to an inn where he was staying. Before dying 30 hours later, he was asked if he meant to commit suicide, and said: "Yes I believe so". But this does not explain why the easel and brushes that he had taken to the fields with him that day, not to mention a gun, were never found, and nor was a suicide note. Van Gogh didn't accuse the boy of shooting him because he welcomed death and didn't want the teenager to be punished. 10/13/2013
  34. 34. The death of Vincent Van Gogh  I have a very deep admiration for this big man and his brother, for his life as a beggar, for his brilliant art and his greatness.  Even in his death on which preferred to go through a suicide (which he detested) before the friend child was blamed to kill him.  The greatest of this man only God can judge. 34 10/13/2013
  35. 35. Van Gogh died in 1890 aged 37. Burial and graves with Theo in Auvers-sur-Oise Town Cemetery. All moments together, and so much more. A life so profoundly troubled and at the same time such incredible beauty. L’Auberge Ravoux, in Auvers-sur-Oise, where Vincent Van Gogh spent his final months and where he died. It is now a restaurant. 35 10/13/2013
