    We often forget the pleasures and insights that the visual arts bring to our lives. In an effort to further arts education at your school, we are passing along some fascinating new information about Vincent Van Gogh.

    Most people know of Van Gogh (1853-1890) as the artist who cut his ear off after having an argument with Gauguin, a fellow artist. Or they know of his lack of success at his chosen profession. He was only able to sell one painting and was supported by his younger brother until his death.

    Many know of his severe bouts with mental illness, culminating in a depression that led him to take his own life. What most people don't know is the fascinating family that Van Gogh came from. After much careful research, it has been discovered that the artist had many famous relatives.

    Among them were:
