You know the name, now know the man

It definitely rings a bell: Vincent van Gogh, renowned the world over for his post-impressionist paintings of fields, farmers, Dutch-life. More than the name and the paint, though? We’re drawing a blank.

Sure, he cut off his ear (that’s something we all know) but, having lived his short life in relative obscurity selling only one painting, our knowledge about the man behind the stars and the sunflowers is a bit limited. The Vrije Academie is all about accessible education in the culture and art sectors, so if you want to know more about Vinny, here’s your chance!
