“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.
