Van Gogh

Life and Times  Van Gogh was a colour wizard. He explored a variety of techniques during his relatively short life as an artist, developing his use of colour from sombre-toned sharply lit painting to the vivid intense use of colour we would associate him with today. He suffered from epilepsy and was tormented by angst and mental illness, and found great difficulty in forming personal relationships. As a result of this, and the general rejection of his work by the art world, he took his own life at the age of 37

Why in 100 Best?
This artist sold only one painting in his lifetime, and died before the world could really comprehend the genius embodied in his work. There has been no greater master of the fusion of colour.
