July 29th marks the anniversary of Vincent van Gogh’s death. He was a prominent painter within the post-Impressionism movement, alongside other notable artists such as Gauguin and Cézanne. A struggling artist who sold one painting during his lifetime, van Gogh obtained fame only after his death. His iconic oil paintings live on in Amsterdam, Paris, and other remarkable cities as art revelers contemplate the madness of life, death, and the cosmos in “Starry Night,” or transport themselves to the dreamy cobblestone streets of Arles, France in “Café Terrace at Night.”
