In 1886 he moved to Paris with his brother in Theo, her he met many impressionism artist like Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Bernard, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Paul Gauguin. He was inspired by this artistic movement and two years after living with his brother, he decided to move away. In Arles, Bouches-du-Rh in France he was invited by Paul Gaugin, his relation with Paul Gaugin ended over a quarrel with Van Gogh, suffering from a mental breakdown Van Gogh decided to chop part of his left ear. Due to his mental unstability he was sent to a clinic.
A year later, he left the clinic and went to the physician Paul Gachet, where he was near to his brother. His depression became worst, until he couldn't survive with his depression. On the 27th of July his suicide took place, he shot his chest with a revolver and 2 days later he died. Theo also went into depression after his brother's death and 6 months later he died and both rest together. During his lifetime he was considered as a failure but years later he became the famous painter we all now know about.
Most of the paintings he made were about landscapes that he saw while treating his mental unstabilty. He was also influenced by his mental unstability, depending on his mood he used different coloured palets. One of the artists that most influenced Van Gogh's work was Gaugin, he was also influenced by the impressionism style which was used by the painters he met while his stay in Paris as such as Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Bernard and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, but what attracted Van Gogh from Paul Gaugin was his own style and his simplified pallet. The other person which influenced his works was his younger brother Theo, Theo was one of the only persons that he stayed in contact with, Theo's opinion was also important when Vincent took a decision but he was more than a brother to him, they were friends.
