Vincent Van Gogh
Vincent Van Gogh (フィンセント・ファン・ゴッホ, Finsento Fan Gohho?) was a painter who was active in Europe in the nineteenth century. The work received high praise after death and has lovers all over the world. In historical fact, he is, of course, a man, as evidenced by his name, portraiture and a few photographs.
The historical Vincent van Gogh was born in 1853 to a Dutch minister's family. Although he hoped to become an evangelist after working as a painter and a bookstore clerk, he was frustrated and aspired to become a painter. After studying the Hague School, he was influenced by the Impressionists and acquired his own style of painting.
After moving to Arles, France, he worked on a number of masterpieces such as "Himawari", but suffered from a worsening relationship with Gauguin who lived with him, causing an incident in which he cut off his ears. After that, he spent all his time drawing while having a mental illness attack, and killed himself in 1890 at the young age of 37. It is said that there is a mysterious part in the death.
Clytie (クリュティエ, Kuryutie?) is a water nymph from Greek mythology, a pillar of "Oceanids", the daughter of Oceanus and Tethys. Although she was Apollo's lover, she became jealous because she was deprived of her love by Leucothea, the daughter of Orcamos, the King of Persia, and told Orcamos about the affair, prompting him to bury Leucothea alive in the sands. ↵However, it was not possible to regain Apollo's love, Despondent, she kept looking up at the sun for nine days without food or water and finally turned into a turnsole. Modern interpretations incorrectly claim she became a sunflower due to a translation error.
