Happy Birthday, Vincent van Gogh!
The famed Dutch post-Impressionist painter was born in Groot-Zundert, Holland on March 30, 1853.
Coincidentally, it has just been discovered that the whimsical appearance of sunflowers in some of van Gogh’s paintings are not the result of the painter’s alleged mental illness; according to scientists, the overly-bushy sunflowers are in fact the result of a genetic mutation in some strains of the flower.
