Vincent van Gogh: The Letters

Share Tweet Email Reddit Flipboard WhatsApp Comments

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.
