Van Gogh who lived a tragic life he has accomplished more in his short career amassing a huge body of art in a very short time. From the potato eaters in his early artistic path to greatness in Starry Night. He originally was following the path to the lord wanting to become a preacher in a coal mine. This was short lived due to how he interacted with the poor and lived as they did. This could be a good thing or bad due to how fragile he was. the support of believing in god and church might of helped him or maybe it could of led to a fruitful artistic life.
