Vincent van Gogh: A life in letters
Vincent van Gogh’s letters are some of the most valuable documents in the world of art. Not only do they throw light on Van Gogh’s own complex and intriguing character, they enlighten the whole creative process as seen through his eyes. Illustrated with original manuscript letters, sketches and paintings, this selection reveals in his own words Van Gogh’s thoughts, his close ties with his brother Theo, his sometimes troubled relationships with friends and fellow artists, his personal doubts and fears, and above all his overriding passion for his art.
‘Again and again, as much for his own appreciation as for his reader’s, he paints a new painting in words.’ John Updike
‘These letters are not merely a source of art historical information but a masterpiece of literature.’ Martin Gayford
