Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions


Great Art Undiscovered

Burt travels through Europe and the United States looking at the history of great artists who were never appreciated during their lifetime. Vincent Van Gogh lived at the end of the 1800s and during his life sold one or two paintings. These days, a single work by Van Gogh goes for over $100 million dollars. Same for Van Gogh's friend, Paul Gauguin. Ignored during his life, now his works sell for over $ 300 million a painting. Burt talks about his desire to become a painter or photographer and how his need to pay the rent ended that plan. He introduces us to a non-profit organization called Artrepeneur that is trying to show artists how to sell their works.
