I had read this book in a library, while I was looking up books about painters. I ended up reading two books about Vicent that time and this was one of them. I always had a soft spot in my heart for this painter. While it is true that I'm a lover of art, I find Vicent's paintings to be particular...

As a person who was not aware of the works of Vincent van gogh, I was surprised to read about the biography of the artist marred by trouble, depression, sadness and failures. For the 1st time, I could truly appreciate his use of dark tones, social themes and shades in his pieces, a result of his...

Vincent Van Gogh, a perfectionist without a doubt.
For starters his story holds so much, everyone would know him as the Man who has a severed ear, but he’s so much more than that. His letters are the reason why you should start knowing him better, he’s a deliberate artist, him and his extraordina...

(it's been 2 years! I did it!)
the book is highly informative, which is not surprising considering it's over 700p long.

The set is a beautiful hardcover collection of Van Gogh's work, as well as a riveting biography of his troubled life.
I own the 2-volume boxed set (1994). I purchased it 'previously enjoyed', on Alibris, and it is evident what a bargain this is! I've read that the newer edition of this book relea...
