"The Potato Eaters" was a painting by Vincent van Gogh. This Dutch artist created it in 1885 in Nuenen, Netherlands. You can find the painting in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Its message is simple but effective: a lonely, starving person is not an attractive person. 

The first masterpiece of Vincent van Gogh, The Potato Eaters is his most popular painting. Although he never intended to sell it, he believed that it would be an instant success. It was completed five years before Van Gogh's more famous masterpiece, The Starry Night. The work was a product of his Realism-Modern Art period and focuses on the haggard expressions of his subjects.

A successful exhibition at The Potato Eaters was not an easy thing to accomplish. Vincent had pinned his hopes on the project and had no intentions of selling it. However, the piece did not show up at the Salon and was not shown to Durand-Ruel, the art dealer who was influential in his community. The Potato Eaters was stolen once, but was eventually recovered. Besides the painting, another version of Theo's was lost, but it was eventually recovered.
