Vincent van Gogh's career lasted just a decade, but in this short time he created more than two thousand paintings, including some of the most famous and influential works of Western art. He was also prolific writer, penning hundreds of letters to his brother, Theo, that form an unusually rich record of his life and work, from his early development as an artist to his struggles with mental illness that sadly cut short a promising career. This book draws on Van Gogh's letters to provide a powerful and poignant account of his life and work. Lively, accessible, and lavishly illustrated, this new book offers a concise introduction to this great master of art.
Klaus Fumann is a German contemporary artist whose work was awarded the Villa Romana Prize and the Art Award of Darmstadt.
