Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While the favorite younger brother and confidant of Vincent van Gogh is known largely through their extensive correspondence, introduced to English readers in 1937 by Irving and Jean Stone's Dear Theo, a fuller picture of this influential art dealer has emerged owing to the Van Gogh Museum's recent publications, Brief Happiness: The Correspondence of Theo van Gogh and Jo Bonger (1999) and The Account Book of Theo van Gogh and Jo van Gogh-Bonger (2002). Written by journalist Ozanne and critic de Jode (both with Le Nouvel Observateur) and supplemented by unpublished letters from the Vincent van Gogh Foundation archives, this modest biography relies on standard sources to tell Theo's singular story. Although heavily documented, the text is a straightforward chronological biography readily accessible to both general and academic audiences. Inevitably, it is as much about Vincent as Theo, who comes across as a saintly pillar of support for his high-strung brother. Theo's ascent and contacts in Parisian art and literary circles are enumerated, as are details about his brief but happy marriage. While the stories of their short, sad lives have been told before, this work provides an informative introduction to the van Gogh brothers and is thus recommended for all libraries.-Russell T.
