What drove artist Van Gogh to produce his masterpieces, and what lead to his lonely life and eventual suicide? Denvir's title is written at a level young adults will appreciate; but the interest will reach into adult audiences with this fine, complete collection of the artist's self-portraits and accompanying reflections, provided in color and in chronological order. -- Midwest Book Review
