b. 1853, Groot-Zundert, The Netherlands; d. 1890, Auvers, France
In only a single decade Dutch-born painter Vincent van Gogh created one of the most important legacies of modern painting. Many of his most vibrant works of art are captured in the Van Gogh coffee mug collection, making these coffee mugs an excellent gift for any art coffee mug collector, art lover, or yourself!
Born in 1853, the young Van Gogh harbored early dreams of being a missionary. It was the beginning of a series of failed careers. In 1888 he left Paris and went to live in Arles, Provence, where in the last two years of his life, he produced his most remarkable works.
