A beautiful, one-of-a-kind collection of more than 150 of Van Gogh's letters, paired with more than 250 works of art.
Vincent Van Gogh wrote hundreds of letters to his brother Theo, as well as to family members and fellow artists including Paul Gauguin and Emile Bernard. In many of them he described, in painstaking detail and beautiful prose, the progress of his work. Van Gogh's Letters presents more than 150 of these stirring letters, excerpted and newly translated, and set side-by-side with the art it describes, including sketches, drawings, and paintings. The result is an elegantly rendered collection that allows us to see the world through the eyes of one of the greatest artists of all time.
