Happy Birthday to Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, born July 16, 1796 in Paris!
Vincent van Gogh, one of the most well-known artists in the world, was born on this day in 1853. Easily described as a tortured genius, Van Gogh was consumed with an undefined illness and possessed an unparalleled talent. Despite - or because of - his complex existence, Van Gogh produced masterpieces that, more than a century later, still evoke a breathtaking wonder. As a tribute to Van Gogh and the beauty he gave us, we’re asking readers to submit a birthday wish via the comments below, on Facebook, through a RT on Twitter, or via Instagram comment.
