Oh NO! That is INCORRECT! There is NO winner as I have stumped all of you! You folks need to brush up on your art history.

The correct answer is Vincent Van Gogh. He spent a decade experimenting in different fields, including art dealer, language teacher, lay preacher, bookseller and missionary worker.

His painting are now worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and there is an amazing museum devoted to him in Amsterdam. I visited it when I was there. Ironically he only sold ONE painting in his lifetime, and died poor.

If you're interested, there is a fascinating film about the last days of his life titled Loving Vincent (2017). It's the world's first fully oil painted feature film. To accomplish this, artists had to paint 66,960 oil paintings of his works!

Apparently he was also the last one on the list which the others suspected. I really do recommend seeing Loving Vincent. It is excellent, and unique!
