The Life of Van Gogh: The Film


Vincent van Gogh

I created this film of the Life of Vincent Van Gogh (35 minutes in length) for use in schools, art societies and art groups. It is suitable for children from around the age of 7 or 8 years old upwards. The film covers all the major aspects of Vincent Van Gogh’s life beginning with his early life in England. Before becoming an artist at the age of 27 he was a preacher ad teacher.

The film covers all the important elements of his artistic life. His move to Paris and the ill fated period in Arles, when he cut off his ear. The sunflowers and most famous paintings are discussed together with his move to Auver sur Oise and his final demise. All aspects of the film, including the more dramatic moments, are covered in a manner suitable for showing to children.

Please note that some aspects of the Life of Vincent Van Gogh and events in it, may have been simplified or amended to make them suitable for a school audience. This video is a great way for kids, students and other people tho learn about the life of Van Gogh and would be a great introduction to an art lesson on van Gogh or expressionist painting in schools and colleges.
