“For me, books, reality and art are one and the same.”
—Vincent van Gogh

A genius of chromaticism, a visionary “worker” of painting, Vincent van Gogh breathed color into his eyes, into his canvases, without words. This selection of letters, animated by a valiant hope and an irrepressible thirst for life, traces his ten years of creative fervor. Joy and despair, serenity and melancholy blend together in an unprecedented way to reveal to us the anger and ecstasy of an incomparable artist.

L’auteur

The life of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) was a shooting star, which forever changed the sky of art. From his native Holland to Auvers-sur-Oise, passing through London, Paris and Arles, the painter produced an unprecedented pictorial work, misunderstood by his time. A meditation on existence, love and art, his letters—halfway between a diary and an imaginary museum, an artistic manifesto and a sketchbook—belie the image of a cursed and crazy artist.
