10 Things You Did Not Know About Van Gogh

We never see behind the picture. There are artists whose works were influenced by their personal lives and artists who didn’t allow the two to mingle. Well, Vincent van Gogh wasn’t one of the latter; everything that happened to him was reflected in his art.

We know some things about artists that are more or less true, some we still debate on, some we don’t have a clue about – usually those are the most interesting. So here are some interesting facts about Vincent van Gogh.

Vincent worked as a librarian as a certain point. If you come to think of it, he fits the profile perfectly: unwashed, cranky and with an utter disregard for the clients. He used to sit in a corner wearing his English top hat and besides ignoring the customers, he’d do a remarkable task: he’d translate the Bible into 4 languages: Dutch, German, English and French. He’d divide the page into four and inch his way through it in all of them simultaneously.
