Publisher's Summary

Vincent van Gogh is one of the world’s most famous artists, and his paintings are among the world’s most valuable. The archetypal starving artist, Vincent died aged just 37 years by his own hand, poor, isolated, and, in his eyes, a failure. Yet, in Vincent’s life story we can see the evolution of a boy becoming a man becoming a great artist, whether his contemporaries could see it at the time or not.  

You will learn about:

  • Vincent as a boy  
  • Marrying a prostitute  
  • Developing his style in Paris  
  • The incident with the razor  
  • Van Gogh in the asylum  
  • After van Gogh’s suicide  
  • And much more!

Great short book

this is a great book about Van Gogh if you are interested in him but don't want to commit to a lengthy read. Good for the commute. Lots of information about the man.
