Article

Vincent van Gogh is considered one of the most important artists of Symbolism or Post-Impressionism. In his most typical works, van Gogh generally uses heightened colors, visible brushstrokes – often with thick impasto, outlined forms, and distorted perspective. He often included religious elements or themes and focused on the lower classes.
