The book does a pretty great job painting a clear picture (ha I crack myself up) of Vincent van Gogh's relationship with his brother Theo and the dynamics of their whole family. And it really does cover a LOT... like there's a timeline, info on relatives, and even sketches & paintings include...

Heiligman brings incredible insi...

What a beautiful biography of brothers and art, pain and joy, life and death! Looking at Vincent and Theo Van Gogh, through such an artistic lens as an art gallery, is pure genius. Deborah Heiligman has created a lovely book, with poetry in the writing, and so much emotion.

As a fan of Van Gogh's art, and the mother of two boys, I just really loved this book about the deep love two brothers had for each other and how one did everything and anything he could to allow the other to follow his dreams.
