About

Artist (Lieuwe - Amsterdam,1991) van Gogh.

Gifted descendant of a world famous family member Vincent Van Gogh: the painter Paul Gauguin's best friend since their shared hardships in Paris - seeking artistic recognition. Gauguin fled the oppressive European civilization, sought and found motives for his best work in Tahiti and Polynesia.

 

Van Gogh, already far removed from earlier work such as “The Potato Eaters” and a passionate, radical impressionist, was left alone in the French province. There Vincent cut off his ear in compassion and painted himself. This shocking painting is located in the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam. That is where by far most of his work hangs and is valued at several billion USD. To the constant annoyance of unorthodox cinematographer/TV maker Theo van Gogh, Lieuwe's gifted, unruly father, those world-famous paintings were all donated to the Dutch State by their family. 

 

But Lieuwe Van Gogh ignores that and continues on his own way. An old Dutch tile wisdom says: “The apple doesn't fall far from the tree”. The Young Van Gogh now paints with the same obsession as Vincent then. His work is powerful, colorful and expressive. 'A Rising Star' - whose art is rapidly increasing in value, with the signature: Van Gogh.
