From the title of this Special Studies project it is perhaps difficult to determine that it is about Vincent van Gogh--the sensitive Dutch boy--the passionate artist--the rejected man. With this short summary of his life and the trials, the problems, and the love, I hope to show how the statement "belief even unto martyrdom" applies to van Gogh. I further will endeavor to prove that Vincent van Gogh was the father of the modern Expressionist movement.
