Lecture highlights
Learn how Vincent van Gogh invented a new painting technique and what method allowed him to bring the art of the 20th century to a new level;
Try to find out whether the artist was crazy – or if this is a myth to promote his art?
Look at the world through Van Gogh's eyes;
Learn about the most scandalous friendship of the turn of the century – that of Van Gogh and Gauguin – and all versions of their conflict which almost cost one of them his life;
Insanity, schizophrenia, porphyria, hysteria, bipolar disorder, manic-depressive psychosis… The list of Vincent van Gogh's alleged conditions goes on. There are numerous myths about his personality. Sometimes they are completely divorced from historical data and are based on misinterpretations of his words.

More than 10 years of correspondence with his brother Theo is perhaps the only thing that gives us an opportunity to look into the thoughts of genius, to learn about his personal approach to art, to get to know him as a person.

Unlike the letters, where we see a sincere, purposeful and sensitive person, the evidence of his contemporaries is too contradictory.

Where is the truth? We will find out in our lecture.
Discover what place women held in artist's life and what connects him to Salvador Dalí.
Who created this course
Our actor
Sam Jackson
Why are lectures delivered by actors?

More often than not, specialists who are over the moon when writing their papers and doing their research do not feel enthusiastic about delivering their ideas and texts in front of a camera. This understanding influenced our decision to invite actors who feel comfortable and confident when being filmed. The expertise of our authors ensures high-quality content, whereas the professionalism of our actors buoys up its appeal to the audience.

In my opinion, “Art for Introvert” is the best lecture hall where you can be fully immeresed in art. I've watched a lot of lectures and courses about art, but Art for Introvert is the best. Thanks to these classes, I finally sorted out the history of art!
At the lectures I received all the answers to my questions about art and painting! Listening to the course is very exciting, it is impossible to just stop doing it! Art for Introvert - you are the best !!

I've completed the course "Become an expert in the history of art". Amazing format. The presentation of the material was so fascinating that 24 hours just got away. I thank the lecture hall for this opportunity to have used the time constructively, having watched such interesting and enjoyable lectures. They actually provide a lot of information, which is varied and new, but you don’t feel tired afterwards and there is no confusion in the head. I now have a desire to definitely listen to wonderful courses on fashion and architecture!
