From Library Journal:

Almost identical in format, these two handsome, monumental books share the same subject. To separate the life of this post-Impressionist genius from the nearly 800 letters (600 to brother Theo alone) he wrote during the years from 1880 to 1890, the time of his optimum artistic activities, would be impossible. Vincent's letters are classic revelations of himself; surely he ranks among the world's major letter writers, and both Zurcher and editor Bernard have made a goodly mix from extracts of Vincent's correspondence, matching paintings and drawings. Bernard, however, while presenting the drawings and writings in chronological sections, each one being a portfolio of paintings, merely quotes, while Zurcher interprets and analyzes so that pictures and text are more compelling. This treatment is fuller and richer. Both volumes make use of The Complete Letters of Vincent van Gogh (1978); both display high-quality reproductions in full color, about 151 in Zurcher, 148 in Bernard, plus numerous drawings. Cost-conscious as libraries must be nowadays, the more expensive Zurcher book does have an edge. The biography is more extensive; there is a bibliography, family tree, and added index of Van Gogh's work. Highly recommended for academic art collections. Gloria K. Rensch, formerly with Vigo Cty P.L., Terre Haute, Ind.
