It is the Dutchman’s birthday today and Google is celebrating it with a Van Gogh-ish Google logo on their homepage.
I like how they change things up a bit to celebrate different holidays and important events. Go to the Google holiday logos page to see more. They also done Michelangelo, Picasso, and Warhol.
When you click on the logo it searches for “Vincent van Gogh” and I noticed the VanGoghGallery.com website isn’t working. It’s a great site and comes up first in the Google results. It probably isn’t working due to the MASSIVE increase in searches for the Dutch master today.
Vincent Willem van Gogh was born on the 30th of March, 1853 in the Netherlands. He died on the 29th of July 1890 in Auvers, France.
