General Note:
An abridgment of The letters of Vincent van Gogh to his brother.
Originally published: Boston : Houghton Mifflin, 1937.
Summary, etc.:
A selection of the letters by Vincent van Gogh to his brother shares his outlook on life and art.
"Irving Stone, acclaimed author of Lust for Life and other remarkable biographic novels, has collected Vincent van Gogh's fascinating letters to Theo. Here we see the great artist as a human being as well as a man with an appointment with destiny. Van Gogh is a man struggling with doubts and fears, beset by poverty and mental illness, but also a painter who dares to break all the rules of academic art to create priceless masterpieces never honored during his lifetime. He was part of the coterie of great artists of his day while as the same time an intimate of aging streetwalkers. These letters are outpourings of his soul that paint a vibrant self-portrait in words equal to the intensity and emotion his painting created. This is the personal story of a legend." -- Publisher's description
