A magical scholarly work of epic scope.
Not only are you learning about Vincent but also the world around him.
Historical context is so important when learning about a figure from the past.
It's what bad biographies lack: the place and times of that particular individual.
I have read many books about Van Gogh including his letters and it is a joy to learn so much more and in such a well written way. Simply excellent.
And I'm only on page 127!
And don't forget about the book's website created by the authors with an additional
6000 pages of notes!!
Get it. And get a used hardcover. I did.
It's beautiful and only cost
