He had been unlucky to live just for 37 decades and also to discover his own passion for art in age 27. Thereforehe worked as an artist for just 10 decades of his lifetime. This report investigates why his artistic works were ignored and neglected though he dwelt in the Enlightenment Age, meaning he lived at the era once the art movement was at its apex.
Throughout the Enlightenment Age, focus on literature, philosophy, science, fine arts and music became much widespread, particularly with the developing middle class. This usually means that Vincent van Gogh had dwelt in a restored and booming artistic motion, which was designed to assist him flourish as a performer and be wealthy. Even though Vincent painted 900 paintings and over 1,100 drawings, his functions remained unidentified and unsold along with his brother Theo encouraged him financially throughout his life.
Possibly one reason for his failure to claim himself as a well-reputed artist is his awkward behaviour when he failed psychotic episodes and delusions. Another motive that added insult to injury is his short-tempered character and rudeness that the majority of the instances brought him bloody confrontations most prominently his struggle with his fellow Gauguin that ended with cutting Vincent's' earlobe. In addition, he was constantly cluttered rather than well-dressed, which left people avoid dealing with him or purchasing his own artistic works. What's more, the deterioration of his health and financial standing delivered more pangs into his life also caused an early departure to such a fantastic artist such as Vincent but today in our era, his glorious painting (Portrait of Dr Gachet) is marketed about 150 million dollars in auctions.
What we understand from Vincent's encounter is the seed that's planted in darkness can blossom later from the light. This implies that in case you work on something possibly you won't see its fruits or its fruits could be predestined into the upcoming generations. What's more significant as a moral lesson is that we shouldn't judge gifted individuals by their outward show but with their own skills, abilities and essence.
