This is a definitive biography, based on new materials, by the bestselling, prize-winning authors of "Pollock". Vincent van Gogh created some of the best loved - and most expensive - works of art ever made, from the early "The Potato Eaters" to his late masterpieces "Sunflowers" and "The Starry Night". He had worked as an art dealer, a missionary and as a teacher in England, and only in his late twenties did he begin a life that would be fundamental in shaping modern art. But when he died in Auvers-sur-Oise in 1890 at the age of thirty-seven he was largely unknown. Written with the exclusive cooperation of the Van Gogh Museum, Pulitzer-winning authors Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith recreate his extraordinary life - and the inside of his troubled mind - like never before. Drawing on all of his (and his family's) extensive letters, which offer exquisitely-written glimpses into his thoughts and feelings, this is the definitive portrait of one of the world's cultural giants.
