Quite embarrassed to have only just learned about this collection. Touted by the Financial Times as “The most important art publication of 2009, if not the decade,” Vincent van Gogh: The Letters draws on 15 years of research. Not surprisingly, it is the most comprehensive printing of the artist’s letters ever produced. Additionally 4,000 illustrations are included, providing a view to the art that van Gogh himself discussed in his correspondence. A great depth of material for sure, but probably worth the effort — there are six volumes and a dvd.
