Most unusually among major painters, Vincent van Gogh (1853-90) was also an accomplished writer. His letters provide both a unique self-portrait and a vivid picture of the contemporary cultural scene. Van Gogh emerges as a complex but captivating personality.

However depressing the life of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890), his struggle is continually redeemed by lucid, analytical observations on art and artists as disparate as his black-sheep friend Gauguin, Manet, Degas, Japanese prints, and even the American illustrator Howard Pyle. He retains a touching certainty that his early hero, Millet, whose pictures of peasants so moved him, will prove to be the precursor of all that is progressive in art.

Vincent van Gogh produced his first drawings while staying at his parents' home in Etten, The Netherlands, schooled chiefly by books on anatomy, perspective and artistic technique. The artist restricted his first drawings to a black and white palette, believing mastery of this discipline to be essential before attempting works in color.

The collection also includes letters van Gogh wrote to his sister Wil and other relatives, as well as between artists such as Paul Gauguin, Anthon van Rappard and Émile Bernard. Vincent's sister-in-law and wife to his brother Theo, Johanna van Gogh-Bonger, spent many years after her husband's death in 1891 compiling the letters, which were first published in 1914.

The complete correspondence of Van Gogh might be a fatty plate for some people to swallow, and that is understandable. One gets more the multifaceted personality of Van Gogh by having his letters not mutilated. If you cannot do something well, better do nothing.

I first read this set back in the late 1980s while in college, and I've long wanted to own a set for myself. With the recent discovery of a possible actual portrait photograph of him, I happily purchased a set to refresh my knowledge of van Gogh, who has long been my favorite artist. This collection is unique in the art world, starting when he was about 17 -- well before he started on his career as a painter -- and continues on until his death. It offers an infinitely fascinating peek into his motivations and his thought process.

It is also infinitely heartbreaking to read, since, as all personal letters, van Gogh never conceived of having such fame that all his personal thoughts to his beloved brother would be seen and read by people all over the world. Reading such things as Vincent asking Theo for some money so he can buy some new underwear, because his current set is falling apart, makes me feel like an eavesdropper -- how hard it must have been for him to write it, and how embarassed he would feel to know others can read it so easily. Such inimate things happen over and over again in this collection.

If you are fascinated by the creative process, by van Gogh, or are a student of art history, this collection is for you. It is a testament to Theo's belief in his brother that he saved all these letters, and that he helped fund his brother's passion for painting for ten years. This collection is beautiful, and well worth the price.

They are meeting my expectations and beyond them. These are a must for anyone who wants the truth about vincent van gogh. Too many opinions and peoples own conclusions about his and theos and his families lives are out there to read etc. These letters reveal the real facts concerning them most importantly vincent himself. Very insightful!

I bought this three book set of Vincent van Gogh's letters here on Amazon. I've had an interest in van Gogh for a long time and discovered this set. This was like walking into a room and turning the lights on it as given great insight into the artist.
My set is the first edition and for a set of books that are fifty seven years old. Well the are as new I couldn't be happier.

I love this set of his letters. I've read the 'Dear Theo' collection several times and it provides a more contained focused window. This version is much wider and more eclectic with much more content. It is going to take some time to get through but i am really enjoying the little visit with Vincent I am having every evening.

This set came on time and is in pristine condition. I am following Van Gogh's life, thoughts, observations and work with these letters.

One discovers that he was an exceptionally observant person and loves all the nuances of nature, from a storm to a sunset to a snowy night. One must be able to "see" in order to produce fine art and one must be able to "feel" what they are observing. Further, with Van Gogh's concluding philosophy of life which became his ultimate religion "one must love all things well." If you do that, one cannot harm anyone or anything. He is "Jesus-like" in that respect, which surpasses all organized religions..

Indispensable to a knowledge of Vincent Van Gogh. Good condition for the three volumes.
I have always been drawn to Vincent Van Gough since I first saw "Sunflowers" as a really little kid. The forward and the memoires are full of info most never knew about him, and the letters are like taking a walk thru his heart and mind, his ups and downs and world views, agonies and excitements over the smallest details in something that reaches out to him. Definately well worth reading over and over. Reading private letters written by someone so very creative and passionate is like no other experience.
