When You've Gotta Gogh...You're In Good Company

Perhaps You've Heard Of Some Of Them?

Vincent van Gogh was a major Post-Impressionist painter. He was a Dutch artist whose work had a far-reaching influence on 20th-century art. His output includes portraits, self portraits, landscapes, and still lifes of cypresses, wheat fields and sunflowers. Van Gogh drew as a child but did not paint until his late twenties; he completed many of his best-known works during the last two years of his life. In just over a decade, he produced more than 2,100 artworks, including 860 oil paintings and more than 1,300 watercolors, drawings, sketches and prints.


Vincent was not the the only Van Gogh on the Gogh. His descendants have made names for themselves in their own unique ways. You are probably very familiar with many of them but perhaps were not aware that they were related to Van Gogh.
