Our Year 4 – Van Gogh

Hello! Welcome to our class page and a taster of what we are learning about this term. Our teachers are Mrs Dale and Mrs McCrone.

Here are some details about our class artist Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890).

Born in Holland, he was a post-impressionist painter whose work had a far-reaching influence on 20th-century art. He drew as a child but did not paint until his late twenties. He completed many of his best-known works during the last two years of his life.

His work includes portraits, self portraits, landscapes and still lifes of cypresses, wheat fields and sunflowers. In just over a decade, he produced more than 2,100 artworks, including 860 oil paintings and over 1,300 watercolours, drawings, sketches and prints.
