A Different Kind of Art Book

Complete Letters of Vincent Van Gogh is Intimate, Honest, and Interesting

There are a lot of books about Vincent Van Gogh: the man, the art, the wild rumors; but few books reveal the character of Van Gogh better than the Complete Letters of Vincent Van Gogh. This book, or rather this three-volume set of books, offers a collection of letters written by Vincent to his dear brother Theo, presenting an intimate look into the private fears and feelings of this celebrated and eccentric artist.

The letters are striking in their intensity. Some letters show Vincent at his creative height, excited about new mediums, new subjects, and new friends. Other letters show Vincent at his lowest lows, trapped in the depths of misery and despair.

Complete Letters of Vincent Van Gogh presents an honest glimpse into the real-life struggles, triumphs, hopes, dreams, and heart of a man whose art continues to speak through our souls. Whether you want to find out more about Vincent Van Gogh the artist or Vincent Van Gogh the man, Letters to Theo will open your eyes in a way that only Vincent, himself can.

Originally published by the New York Graphic Society in 1958, the boxed set edition published by Bulfinch in is a replica of this earliest release. The collection contains over 1500 pages of letters and reproductions of over 200 sketches and doodles etched on the original letters. The books are hardcover, with sturdy binding and classic appeal.

Complete Letters of Vincent Van Gogh is a treasure trove of inspiration and empathy for any artist who has ever struggled and dared to keep painting nonetheless.
