Vincent van Gogh lived the passionate life of an art-obsessed man. A life that has since been heavily romanticized by countless books and movies. The real van Gogh lived a distinctly unromantic life: the son of a clergyman, he was obsessed with helping the poverty-stricken, struggled with mental illness, and persisted with his painting even in the face of the world's indifference to his art. This volume strips away the old romantic image and reveals to readers a van Gogh who suffered deeply, living his life on the edge of madness. In these pages, readers will encounter one of the world's greatest artists and a man with a tragic destiny.
