Description
Following their Pulitzer Prize–winning biography Jackson Pollock: An American Saga, Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith here offer an exquisitely detailed, ultimately heartbreaking portrait of Vincent van Gogh. With the resources of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Naifeh and Smith have incorporated a wealth of previously untapped materials to illuminate Van Gogh's early struggles to find his place in the world, his intense relationship with his brother Theo, his impetus for turning to brush and canvas, and his move to Provence, where in a brief burst of incandescent productivity he painted some of the best-loved works in Western art.

"Could very well be the definitive biography ... in it we get a much fuller view of Van Gogh, owing to the decade Naifeh and Smith spent on research to create this scholarly and spellbinding work.... How pleased we should be that [these authors] have rendered so exquisitely and respectfully Van Gogh's short, intense, and wholly interesting life."—Boston Globe
