Book Summary

Dear Theo: The Autobiography of Vincent Van Gogh, edited by Irving Stone and Jean Stone, presents a portrait of the talented but tortured artist, Vincent Van Gogh, through his letters to his brother, Theo Van Gogh.

This collection of letters provides a candid look into the life of a great artist, who not only struggled with poverty and fear, but with the demons in his mind as well. The book also sheds light on how the artist broke all the rules and conventions of the art world to create masterpieces which have stood the test of time. Through these letters, readers can get a glimpse into Van Gogh's soul.

Van Gogh considered his brother to be his companion and confidant and reveals himself, both as a man and as an artist, through the letters. Details about his life, his mundane concerns, his views about art and his deepest feelings are covered in the book. Readers will see the side of the artist as a man who was desperate for love and for whom each day was a fight for survival.

Dear Theo: The Autobiography of Vincent Van Gogh was published by Penguin USA in 1995 and is available in paperback format.
