Book Summary

Classified as a Post-Impressionist, Van Gogh is perhaps one of the world's most famous and instantly recognisable artists. Famous for almost as much for his embodiment of a tortured romantic artist as for his bold and unusually distorted artworks, his works now fetch some of the highest prices in world of fine art.

This beautifully illustrated and meticulously researched project will be hugely popular as a collector's item for both Van Gogh's established fans and for those wishing to learn about him for the first time. With the inclusion of facsimiles of 15 documents including Van Gogh's famous private letters, The Treasures of Van Gogh offers a unique insight into his life and works ­- from his childhood and youth in Zundert in southern Netherlands, the time he spent as a missionary and the gradual decline in his mental health that led him to cut off part of his ear and eventually to commit suicide.
