Overview

Vincent van Gogh by Vincent van Gogh

The incarnation of the myth of a cursed artist, Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) is a legend who became a reference for modern art. An Expressionist during the Post-Impressionist movement, his art was misunderstood during his lifetime. In Holland, he partook in the Dutch realist painting movement by studying peasant characters. Anxious and depressed, Vincent van Gogh produced more than 2000 artworks, yet sold only one in his lifetime. A self-made artist, his work is known for its rough and emotional beauty and is amongst the most popular in the art market today.

About the Author

Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) wrote more than 900 letters throughout his life. He believed that writing was an art equal to painting, and placed his utmost care in expressing himself finely, with words which reflected his convoluted personal feelings. These letters, written mostly to his brother, Theo, but also to friends and his sister, Wil, offer a penetrating and comprehensive insight into the life of van Gogh not only as an artist, but also as a multi-faceted character. They serve as the most solid illustration of the development of his oeuvre.
