The life of Vincent Van Gogh touches our hearts because of his devotion to his art and his struggles to try and get them accepted. He died penniless. Yet, over a century after his death, we keep learning about his paintings making some collector a small fortune. This week, his Still Life, Vase with Daises and Poppies was sold for $61.8m.In 1990, his Portrait of Dr Gachet was sold for a record $82.5m.
