Vincent van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890)

Starry Night Over the Rhone

I dream my painting and I paint my dream.

                                                            – Vincent Willem van Gogh

This one is my favorite quote written by Van Gogh.  From this quote, I can feel his passion and obsession to paint.  Van Gogh is dutch post-impressionist(1853-1890). He is a pioneer of expressionism,  it is a deep influence on 20th century art, especially Fauvism and German Expressionism.
