It reproduces extensive extracts from his correspondence and is illustrated with his paintings, drawings and facsimile letters. Van Goghs letters are a testimony to his struggle to survive and work. Here, the combination of letters and illustrations, concentrating on the period when he painted his greatest works, aims to provide an insight into his daily life in Arles and St-Remy, his spiritual torment and the process of artistic creation itself. The author is an Observer journalist specializing in the arts, and has published four previous books, including Young Vincent: The Story of Van Goghs Years in England.
