Anecdotes about Vincent van Gogh – Three

MTr Anecdotes 4

In 1880 Vincent Van Gogh, 27 years old, decided to become an artist. It was a strange decision, because by that age most people either already are artists, or never will be. 

But Van Gogh needed something to do. He had failed at everything else he had tried, most recently the occupation of preacher.

Among other things, he had given away all his possessions. No one could figure out where he had got this crazy idea.
