Here you can find the Google Trends graph for famous impressionist and post-impressionist artists. Claude Monet, who named the art movement with his masterpiece Impression, lists second after Vincent van Gogh. It looks like the popularity of the name of Vincent van Gogh is more than the sum of all other artists. My role in this kind of situation is asking the magical word:“Why?”

Why is he more popular than others?

You know the answer because of his unique story: “ A genius who cut his ear because of a tantrum.” But don’t forget that every artist had similar stories in these years-the passion of art, poverty, inadequate health conditions, and a desperate death.

Vincent left a powerful story behind without knowing what he was doing.

As you know, stories are bulletproof.
