    schema:description "This volume is a collection of more than 150 of Vincent Van Gogh's (1853-1890) letters paired with more than 250 of his works of art -- including sketches, drawings, and paintings. Van Gogh was a Dutch post-Impressionist painter whose work, notable for its rough beauty, emotional honesty, and bold color, had a far-reaching influence on 20th-century art. Van Gogh wrote hundreds of letters to his brother Theo as well as to family members and fellow artists including Paul Gauguin and Emile Bernard. In many of the letters he described, in painstaking detail and beautiful prose, the progress of his work and his chaotic mental state. Van Gogh suffered from frequent mental breakdowns, particularly in the latter part of his life. The letters capture a mind never quite at ease and a soul that suffered from acute loneliness and self-doubt. But they also reveal his staggering artistic genius, the evolution of his theoretical principles, his formidable intellect and strong work ethic, and his deep connection to the natural world around him."@en ;
