Ever Yours

The Essential Letters

Sickly, chronically depressed, boorishly disagreeable, often out of his mind, Vincent van Gogh was also revolutionary with a paint brush and could write one hell of a letter. This collection of 265 letters (820 are known to exist) shows a man of limitless complexity—warm, funny, knowledgeable about art and fellow artists, completely devoted to his brother Theo, and yet, hauntingly fragile. Ever Yours includes a splendid introduction detailing the artist’s life, and family photographs and reproductions of more than eighty actual pages of letters containing sketches by Van Gogh.
