Vincent and Theo Van Gogh: A Dual Biography

by Jan Hulsker, Johann Van Gogh

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
In this revised English translation of his Lotgenoten, first published in Dutch and based on original letters and other documented sources, Hulsker has successfully woven together dramatic events in the lives of the van Gogh brothers to produce an in-depth study revealing the role art played in their destinies as well as their personalities, relationships, and desires. This new perspective allows the reader to become involved with the van Goghs on a personal level and helps explain some of the mystery surrounding their often controversial and tragic lives. Divided into four major stages, the text focuses on their early lives, first interest in art, productive art careers, and tragic endings. A timely and important addition to the biography of Vincent in this centennial year of his death. Highly recommended.
