What a perfect portrait of Vincent and his brother
Reviewed in the United States on April 21, 2017
What a perfect portrait of Vincent and his brother! I thought the simplicity of the text struck just the right tone- direct, honest, and original, much like Vincent's own paintings. I had read so much about this artist in the past, including his letters to Theo, that I didn't expect to learn much more. What a surprise to find I came away from this book with a deeper understanding of Vincent and his art and the love the Van Gogh brothers had for each other. My daughter-in-law is a high school art teacher and I ordered her a copy for her classroom. I would give her mine, but I've already loaned it out. It's that kind of book, one that you want to share with everyone you know. (I rarely give five stars, but when I thought of all the books on Vincent that I've come across, I do believe that this one would be his favorite.
