Vincent van Gogh (March 30, 1853 – July 29, 1890)

Vincent van Gogh is one of the most revered painters in the Western canon. Yet only a handful of his pieces constantly show up up in searches and textbooks, which is why, in this post, I've endeavored to expose you to some of his rarer creations.  Actually there are so many passionate paintings out there that I've been forced to painfully pick and choose only a few, while biting into my lip; on a future date, I'll have to make a second post of his wonderful works, but, for now, I hope this suffices.
