Vincent Willem van Gogh born in 1853 was a Dutch post-impressionist painter who posthumously became one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. In a decade, he created about 2,100 artworks, most of which date from the last two years of his life. Many of his works of art have translated into wooden puzzles for adults.
Tragically, Van Gogh died at the too young age of 37 without ever knowing the recognition his art would receive or that he is now viewed as one of the most influential artists having helped lay the foundations of modern art.
The Starry Night was painted by memory during his stay at the asylum Saint Paul de Mausole. This particular piece makes a beautiful wooden jigsaw puzzle despite Van Gogh creating this work of art while living in the asylum.
