Vincent and I have a few things in common. Lets see, we both love painting, we both love starry nights and ....I think that is it. I still have both my ears and I have already sold more than one painting in my lifetime. Vincent has sold only one painting in his lifetime. It was his The Red Vineyard, November 1888, Pushkin Museum, Moscow). He sold it to Anna Boch, 1890. Van Gogh's work, together with those of Pablo Picasso, are among the world's most expensive paintings ever sold, as estimated from auctions and private sales. Some works are sold for over $100 million (today's equivalent). Do you now understand why I say you should invest in my work now, while I am still alive!!
I have always thought my family feel sorry for me and that is why they buy my paintings. But now, all of a sudden, I realise they are actually very clever! My one brother was the first to buy a painting from me. I made 43% profit. I sold it for R20. Great investment brother!
