Portrait of Vincent van Gogh in orange against starry night sky.
Historical Context:
Vincent Van Gogh was a Post-Impressionist painter who led the way for Expressionism, while also greatly influencing modern art. In his younger years he worked for an art firm, but left to become a missionary to poor mining areas. It wasn't until about the age of 27 that he started to paint. Van Gogh's earlier paintings had more subdued colors, it wasn't until later that he began to use the brighter colors that are so associated with his name.
