After a hard life, struggling with his talent and demons, Vincent van Gogh took his faith in his own hands. Before that he produces lots of paintings which were way ahead of their time, only to find out nobody wouldn't buy them. During his life he sold only one painting. After his death his painting of sunflowers was worth millions. How strange life can be.
He painted most of his, now, world-famous work in Southern France, so it's only logical that there's a museum named after him in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
