He later moved to Paris where he became attentive to the new art society. He pursued his art skills even though he had serious mental problems. At the age of thirty-seven he shot himself to death.

His masterpiece "Wheat fields and Cypress Trees" is a prime example of how he saw the things. This piece also inspired me to draw nature. His use of swirls and colors makes that so interesting.Struggles through his life are what inspired him to paint all his beautiful pieces.
