Vincent Van Gogh was a Dutch painter & one of the most famous figure in Western art history.

Here are some reasons why Van Gogh became so popular.

Van Gogh's emphatic brushwork & unique coloring style has played key role in making him popular.

His "Sunflowers" & "Starry Nights" are two of the world's best-known paintings.

During his life time he made thousands of drawings & paintings but he was managed to sell just one of them.

Many believes that the reason behind his popularity can be his sucide & self-harming incidents.

Since, he got all the fame after his death.

Also, the efforts of his sister-in-law's (Jo Bonger) were remarkable. Jo hosted large show of Van's work in Amsterdam and Paris.
