Greatest Painters of All Time
Painting is a unique skill and has been bestowed on a few of us. Throughout history, people with this talent were scarce enough to be pointed out in their communities. They had to face many difficulties and they inspired generations that followed them.
The most beautiful aspect of art is that it is unifying, not discriminating. Representatives of many different art movements are among the greatest painters of all time without any distinction. For centuries, painters have been painting on canvases, walls, and domes, and millions of people have traveled to foreign countries to see them. The artists who have already created this effect are described as great artists.
Whether the paintings are 30 cm or 45 cm in size, or 3 meters to 5 meters in size, what is important is the contribution of the painter's spirit. Painters create works that inebriating other people with their spontaneous feelings and make the world a better place.

Vincent van Gogh, who expresses himself with colors, is one of the most famous post-impressionist artists, who has made a significant impact on the history of art. It took many years for Vincent van Gogh, who was born the son of a pastor, to see art as his calling. Unhappy romantic relationships and unsuccessful working experiences he lived before dedicating himself to the art, left deep traces that shaped Vincent Van Gogh's mood.
Vincent van Gogh, who went to Belgium to study art, discovered Rubens' works and inspired from them. Vincent van Gogh went to Paris in 1886 and met with impressionist painters such as Cormon, Pissarro, Monet, and Gauguin, and he influenced from their techniques. He tried to copy their techniques and create works, but when this failed, he developed his own technique of short brush strokes, which enabled him to take his place in the history of art.
Vincent van Gogh's most productive period has been the last two or three years of his life. One of the greatest painters of all time, Vincent van Gogh has produced more than 2,100 artworks, of which 860 are oil paintings, during over a decade of art life. Vincent van Gogh, who had psychological problems and struggled with madness for many years, laid the foundations of today's modern art approach by transferring what he imagine on his mind to the canvas with his own technique.
