Vincent Van Gogh is probably one of the most acclaimed painters in history. His works are known by millions of people and some of them have been sold for incredible amounts of money. But Van Gogh could never learn how famous he was going to be. His life was not a happy one. The way he saw life crashed against the conventions of his time, and he had the feeling they people could not understand his paintings and the way he saw life. This ended up with his tragic death at the age of 37.

Don McLean wrote a song about Van Gogh's life called "Vincent". He describes his struggle to understand life and to be understood by others.

Watch the video, listen to the song and try to understand a little of Vincent's life:
