9780300209471: Ever Yours: The Essential Letters

"There is scarcely one letter by Van Gogh which I, who am certainly no expert, do not find fascinating." —W. H. Auden

In addition to his many remarkable paintings and drawings, Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) left behind a fascinating and voluminous body of correspondence. This highly accessible book includes a broad selection of 265 letters, from a total of 820 in existence, that focus on Van Gogh’s relentless quest to find his destiny, a search that led him to become an artist; the close bond with his brother Theo; his fraught relationship with his father; his innate yearning for recognition; and his great love of art and literature. The correspondence not only offers detailed insights into Van Gogh’s complex inner life, but also re-creates the world in which he lived and the artistic avant-garde that was taking hold in Paris.
 
The letters are accompanied by a general introduction, historic family photographs, and reproductions of 87 actual pages of letters that contain sketches by Van Gogh. Selected from the critically acclaimed 6-volume set of letters published by the Van Gogh Museum in 2009, Ever Yours is the essential book on Van Gogh’s letters, which every art and literature lover needs to own.

Book Description:

This compendium of Vincent van Gogh's letters—one of the most intriguing and multifaceted bodies of artistic correspondence ever known—provide a rare glimpse into the artist's mind and motivations

From the Author:

"There are so many people, especially among our pals, who imagine that words  are nothing. On the contrary, don’t you think, it’s as interesting and as difficult  to say a thing well as to paint a thing. There’s the art of lines and colours, but there’s the art of words that will last just the same."
—Van Gogh to Emile Bernard
