Inhaltsangabe

Each night, when the hours of painting and drawing were over, Vincent van Gogh put pen to paper and poured out his heart through letters to his beloved brother, Theo, his confidant and companion. No thought was too small, no element of his craft too insignificant, no happening too trivial. It was all scrupulously recorded and shared.
In these letters, Van Gogh reveals himself as artist and man. Even more than if he had purposely intended to tell his life story, Van Gogh’s letters lay bare his deepest feelings, as well as his everyday concerns and his views of the world of art. Irving Stone has edited the letters of Vincent in such a way as to retain every line of beauty, significance, and importance. “It is my humble opinion that Vincent was as great a writer and philosopher,” Stone says, “as he was a painter.”

Great Book

Reading autobiographies is usually not me thing. I stumbled upon Dear Theo when I was looking for books about innovative thinking. I was not disappointed on that respect.

But in addition you get a good feeling about what life meant back in 1870-1890. The book purely consists of letters that Vincent wrote to his brother. So, this is not some historian that describes a time he might not even have lived in, but the real thoughts of a person from that time. And I can tell you, Vincent was not some dumb-ass. It amazes me how people 140 years back thought pretty much the same thoughts as we do nowadays; 40 years before the first world war, right after the industrial revolution.

And, of course, there are tons of insights about Vincent's pictures, his techniques, how his painting changed over time, interactions with painters of renown, books he read and liked and whatnot.

I myself am not an art-guy. But if you listen to what Vincent thought about his daily painting and how much efforts and experimenting he put into this, even I listened with great interest.
