Revered as an artist, Vincent van Gogh was also an impassioned and eloquent letter writer whose correspondence displays a remarkable literary gift and the ability to communicate his ideas about nature, art and life in direct, emotive language. Illustrated with works of art and letters that demonstrate van Gogh's abiding preoccupations - such as the role of colour in painting and the cycles of nature - this magnificent volume explores the letters as a self-portrait of the artist.
