Vincent van Gogh was born on March 30th, 1853 in a small town in the Netherlands. As a child, Van Gogh was very serious and very considerate of his family. His passion for art started at a very young age after his parents sent him to a private middle school. His mother was the one who encouraged his artworks, and at this middle school, he was taught by a Constantijn C. Huysmans. This did little to ensure his happiness and he returned home in 1868. He expressed his childhood as "austere and cold and sterile".

The starry night
Van Gogh created Starry Night in 1889 just thirteen months before his death when he was staying in an asylum at Saint-Remy. Starry Night is believed to show the view from his bedroom window.
Self-portrait by van Gogh It was made in September 1889 in the asylum of Saint-Rémy-de-provence. The painter wears a light blue jacket, a collar-free shirt and a waistcoat. The hair, combed towards the nape, is slightly decomposed and reddish like the beard. The features of the face are hard, the cheeks carved like the look, the background is undefined, animated by evident and winding brushstrokes that create small vortices. There is also a very strong contrast between warm colors of the face and the rest of the painting in blue and cold tones.
