Product description


"No artist was ever a more engaging, vivid, honest, yearning, generous correspondent: you can open this selection on any page and be instantly riveted. Marvellously condensed from the Van Gogh Museum's landmark six-volume 2009 edition."-Jackie Wullschlager, Financial Times "The truth about Vincent van Gogh, the very core of his struggles, beliefs, madness, and ambitions can be found in his collected letters, Ever Yours."-Nick Mafi, Daily Beast "Of considerable interest to art lovers, students, scholars, and others, this affordable, well-presented, and scholarly publication is very highly recommended for many academic, large public, and special library art book collections."-Library Journal, starred review "A fitting tribute in the year that marks the 125th anniversary of the artist's death."-Apollo Magazine "The selection is astute, the translation earthy, the facsimiles of illustrated pages handsome and comprehensive. Of all the editions, Ever Yours is the best combination of readability and accuracy for a general reader."-Alexander Adams, Spiked "[Van Gogh's letters] make up not only a creative autobiography without parallel in visual art but what the editors of a new selection call 'a highlight of world literature.' . . . Lovers not only of great art but great autobiography should devour this ample sample. A bargain at 770 pages, enriched by scores of the drawings (or 'croquis') with which Vincent explained his works-in-progress, the volume knits 265 letters into a coherent, impassioned, and eloquent pilgrim's progress."-Boyd Tonkin, The Independent A Best Art Book of 2014 -Huffington Post
