Vincent van Gogh

The second and third graders are studying the artist Vincent van Gogh in the art room right now. They love hearing the life story of this very interesting and world famous artist. Did you know that van Gogh never sold a single painting while he was alive? Now his paitnings sell for hundreds of millions of dollars! He painted many self-portraits and not until recently did we know what he really looked like. Go here to see a recently found photograph that they believe is Vincent van Gogh! The Metropolitan Museum of Art also has a fun interactive website about him - check it out here.
