Vincent van Gogh
Plenty of choice of van Gogh souvenirs and gifts
The paintings of Vincent van Gogh are great sources of inspiration for decorations on all sorts of products. For example, there are van Gogh umbrellas, iPad cases, bags and shoppers, tableware, folding vases, IXXI wall decorations, puzzles, and even bicycle bells. The van Gogh paintings that inspired these products the most are the Almond Blossom and Sunflowers. Nevertheless, the Irises, Plum Tree, Butterflies and Poppies, Wheatfield with crows, Stumps, Seascape and a self-portrait by Vincent van Gogh are also used as decorations for many products. In other words, something for everyone!

About Vincent van Gogh
Van Gogh was born in the Netherlands, but later in life, he moved to Paris and other areas of France. He never really lived a happy life and nobody liked his paintings. He was unable to make a living out of a painting and had to regularly ask his parents or his brother Theo for help. In 1888 he cut off part of his left ear. He became an alcoholic and end up in a psychiatric institution. After receiving advice from his doctor, in 1890 he started fully focusing on painting and created the 12 canvases of landscapes, including “Wheatfield under Thunderclouds” and the “Stumps”. On July 27, 1890, Vincent walked onto a wheat field and shot himself in the chest. He left behind over 850 paintings and almost 1300 other works on paper.
