•This book traces the brief and troubled life of van Gogh, one of the greatest artists of all time: his birth in a Dutch village, his travels in Belgium and England, his arrival in Impressionist Paris and his discovery of the delights of the south of France, where he died aged only thirty-seven.
•It shows how, in spite of suffering mental crises and inner turmoil, van Gogh always continued to search for ways of painting that expressed the true essence of his subjects.
•It looks at his unique use of color, which puts his work among the most innovative and original of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
•It contrasts the way in which van Gogh’s work was disregarded in his time with the exceptional value of his paintings today.
