My Review:

 

This book is a lovely collection of some of Vincent Van Gogh’s unseen works, drawings, and painting combined with his life shown in memories. Stories from his own words showing who he was and how he lived. How he saw the poorer people as inspiration for his work. It was an interesting book to read, it was more than just his art, it was his life, his personality and his vision of the world.
Trust me this is not a picture book, instead, it is an in-depth study of the artist as a man.

If you love the artwork of Vincent Van Gogh, you might want to see the real man behind the paintings. His outlook on the world he lived in. His view of the poorer people that he associated with and that inspired him to be caring and generous. He is a person that I would have loved to know better.

I was looking for something different to read and I found this book on Netgalley. They along with the publishers allowed me to read this so that I might leave an honest review. This is a book worth having.

What I learned from this book is that Vincent Van Gogh was more than the artist Van Gogh. He was a sensitive man. A sad and mentally ill man, that saw beauty through his own dark situations. A man that was affected by those he associated with. Turning the negativity into something we now look at and feel the wonder and the beauty.
So yes, there are painting and drawing in this book that reminds you of Van Gogh’s great talent, but there is more to this book than just his art.
