Vincent Van Gogh created many self images, not because of his narcissism, but for his inability to find models to pose for him. There are 4 Van Gogh’s shown on the website, all are self portraits for this reason. His brother was responsible for him because Vincent was incapable of providing of living by being an artist. After just ten years of painting and producing some 900 paintings, Vincent van Gogh took his own life in 1890. Never fully appreciated in his own time, it wouldn’t take long for the art world to recognize the genius they lost. Within twenty years of his death, there were memorial shows of his works all over the world – influencing generations of artists to come.
