Well, that is because Van Gogh probably stands as the best example of a self-taught master of the art of painting. In fact, in his early days, Van Gogh was terrible with a brush, considered to be of no natural talent. However, Van Gogh taught himself by first doing some still image artworks and copying the existing artworks of his time. Copying the work of others let him perfect his brushwork and use of colors.
