Vincent Van Gogh – 259 glyphs, 4 weights.

Retro sans with unusually long descenders, inspired by the cover of the Dutch book “Vincent Van Gogh” by Leo de Laforque, illustrated by Auke A. Tadema, as part of the Mimosa series. I couldn’t find a publication date although I suspect it was printed in the 1940’s.

Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) was a Dutch naïve painter who emerged as one of the most highly regarded post impressionists in the history of Western art.

He prolifically produced about 2,100 artworks, including 860 oil paintings which today garner millions of dollars at auction.

Unfortunately his struggles with mental illness, alcoholism and poverty receive equal billing to his artistic achievements.   It’s now a cliché but sometimes madness and genius go hand-in-hand.

He died by his own hand at the age of 37.  His work and influence was not recognized until after his death.
