Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all’ Few artists’ letters are as self-revelatory as Vincent Van Gogh’s, and the selection included here, spanning the whole of his artistic career, sheds light on every facet of the life and work of this complex and tortured man. Engaging candidly and movingly with his religious struggles, his ill-fated search for love, his intense relationship with his brother Theo and his attacks of mental illness, the letters contradict the popular image of Van Gogh as an anti-social madman and a martyr to art, showing instead that he was capable of great emotional and spiritual depths. Above all, they stand as an intense personal narrative of artistic development and a unique account of the process of creation. The letters are linked by explanatory biographical passages, revealing Van Gogh’s inner journey as well as the outer facts of his life. This edition includes the drawings that originally illustrated the letters. ‘If ever there was any doubt that Van Gogh’s letters belong beside those great classics of artistic self-revelation, Cellini’s autobiography and Delacroix’s journal, this excellent edition dispels it’ The Times About This Edition Translator's Note Introduction Biographical Outline Early Letters Ramsgate and Isleworth Dordrecht Amsterdam The Borinage Etten The Hague The Hague, Drenthe and Nuenen From Nuenen to Antwerp Paris Arles Saint-Rémy Auvers-sur-Oise Bibliography Index ‘Rarely has one been welcomed as wholeheartedly and intimately to the process of creation of truly great art as one is in Van Gogh’s letters' - Ronald de Leeuw in the Introduction ‘If ever there was any doubt that Van Gogh’s letters belong beside those great classics of artistic self-revelation, Cellini’s autobiography and Delacroix’s journal, this excellent new edition dispels it’ – The Times
