    One thought on “Van Gogh's Letters: The Mind of the Artist in Paintings, Drawings, and Words, 1875-1890”

    1. I am reading Van Gogh's letters for the first time and I find that although this paperback version of a coffee table book seems voluminous, it is actually very readable and digestible. Van Gogh wrote more than 700 letters to his brother and friends so going through them all may be a bit difficult for a beginner like me. This volume extracts the more important and interesting letters and organises them according to major phases of his creative output including:1) the earlier years (his 20s) when [...]

    2. This is a beautiful and enlightening collection of Van Gogh’s letters in the context of the drawings and paintings that they refer to. The book is well printed on heavy paper, and the reproductions seem quite good. There are reproductions of many of the actual physical letters becaues they often include sketches of the works that Van Gogh was drawing or painting at the time. It also provides the translations of the letters, and representative drawings and paintings. Most of the letters are to [...]

    3. Given to my by one of my best friends for my 28th birthday. The actual book is gorgeous, a tactile experience to read in and of itself, with thick, almost silky pages. Stunning full color images throughout combined with visually appealing formatting make for a reading experience anyone can appreciate, an artist or not!

    4. I think Van Gogh's paintings are enhanced by these letters. It shows his drive to succeed as an artist but never making it during his life. Without these letters, would we know what it's like to be an artist?

    5. Being able to read Van Gogh's words while perusing his work provides wonderful insight into the mind of a true artist.

    6. Amazing read. I researching a movie screenplay involving Van Gogh and this will be invaluable in developing dialogue for it. The printing of Van Gogh's work in the book is top notch as well.

    7. 4.5. Love that you can see that he is 90% normal a genius with an I diagnosed epileptic disorder. Fascinating.
