Created into an upper-middle-class family, Van Gogh drew as a kid and was serious, noiseless and thoughtful. As a man he proved helpful as a skill dealer, often exploring, but became stressed out after he was used in London. He considered religion, and put in time as a Protestant missionary in southern Belgium. He drifted in unwell health condition and solitude before taking on painting in 1881, having shifted back home along with his parents. His more youthful brother Theo backed him fiscally, and both had an extended correspondence by notice. His early on works, typically still lifes and depictions of peasant labourers, contain few symptoms of the brilliant colour that recognized his later work. In 1886, he relocated to Paris, where he achieved associates of the avant-garde, including Emile Bernard and Paul Gauguin, who have been reacting from the Impressionist sensibility. As his work developed he created a fresh method of still lifes and local scenery. His paintings grew brighter in shade as he developed a method that became totally realised during his stay in Arles in the south of France in 1888. During this time period he broadened his subject material to add olive trees and shrubs, cypresses, wheat areas and sunflowers.
Van Gogh experienced psychotic shocks and delusions and even though he concerned about his mental balance, he often neglected his physical health, didn't eat properly and drank intensely. Once relationship with Gauguin concluded after having a confrontation with a razor, when in a psychotic reaction, he wounded part of his own right ear. He spent an amount of time in psychiatric nursing homes, including an interval at Saint-Remy. After he discharged himself and relocated to the Auberge Ravoux in Auvers-sur-Oise near Paris, he came up the attention of the natural doctor Paul Gachet. His unhappiness extended and on 27 July 1890, Vincent van Gogh shot himself in the torso with a revolver. He passed away two days and nights later.
