Van Gogh's "Sunflowers" was described by art critic Robert Hughes as "the most popular still life in the history of art." Van Gogh's "Irises" sold for a record $53.9 million. And the most popular painting at New York City's Museum of Modern Art is van Gogh's "The Starry Night."

Post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh was born in the Netherlands on March 30, 1853. He had a great influence on 20th century art, though his works were not well known during his life. He died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the age of 37, on July 29, 1890, after a lifelong struggle with mental illness.
