Vincent

by Barbara Stok - £12.99  SelfMadeHero (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781906838799 | ISBN 10: 1906838798

A portrait of Van Gogh's turbulent stay in Provence.
 
Vincent dreams of setting up an artists' house in Arles for himself and his friends. However, his attacks of mental illness confuse and disorient him, culminating in the notorious incident with his ear and leaving his dreams shattered. Throughout all of this, Vincent's brother Theo stands by him, offering constant and unconditional support.
 
Van Gogh was passionate about his art. His ideas about success, setbacks and how to create a meaningful life provide an interesting counterpoint to our age of individualism and commercialism.
