This landmark work of art scholarship, hailed by the Financial Times as 'the most important art publication of 2009, if not the decade', quickly sold out on original publication. It is now available again in a limited number of copies: this is an opportunity not to be missed.
This is the most complete edition of Van Gogh's letters ever produced, drawing on fifteen years of scholarship and dedicated research. For the first time, all the works of art to which Van Gogh refers are shown alongside the letters - not only the paintings and drawings that he himself was working on at the time, but also the works by others that he mentions.
Features new transcriptions of every known letter to or from Van Gogh
The complete collection: this edition includes all the letters, both in the Van Gogh Museum and those in other museums, archives and private collections

New material: previously unknown letters and fragments of letters are published in English for the first time

Includes supplementary texts and information about Van Gogh's life, his family, his correspondents, his characteristics as a letter writer and the context in which the letters were written, as well as a comprehensive list of materials discussed in the letters, a chronology of his life and a full index
