Although this is a biography, it’s usually found under “fiction” in bookstores and libraries. It gives a better understanding of the artists process, along with describing the origins of some of Van Gogh’s most famous works– The Potato Eaters, Sunflowers.

I wish the last part, about Vincent’s stay in Auvers, were longer and more detailed for example showing Vincent’s relationships with other people than Gachetbecause it looks like Stone wanted to finish the bo 3,5.

Stone additionally did much of his research “in the field”. Whenever there was a girl in his life, I went from feeling sympathetic to hating him. By that time he would be refreshed and could go back to his painting again. Van Gogh led such a miserable life, and was never successful nor happy, snhelo he is one of the most famous artists ever.


How far can a person carry problems along is well narrated in this biography. That alone is God. After reading about all these deep and intense artists, I wonder if their ghosts are upset that their work now adorns dorm rooms and plastic coasters.

The Iving lived primarily in Los Angeles, California.

After the book ends, Stone has a section called “Notes”, where he admits to the reader that a couple of the scenes such as Van Gogh’s meeting with Paul Cezanne were clearly a product of his imagination. Theo called them monomaniacs. There is a lot of French language in it also which can be challenging.

It was more an obsession with whatever he did. Return to Book Page. A hall twenty times the size of Theo’s sitting room would have been too small to vivit the dynamic force of the fighting, strident painters.


I’m glad I got to finally read a book about the life of an artist, and I think Irving Stone puts a lot of effort and depth in portraying Van Gogh.

For example, he spent many years living in Italy while working on The Agony and the Ecstasy. There is a greater risk of getting your heart broken or overdosing, but people still do it everyday because there was always that chance it could make things better.

He seemed self-destructive and bi-polar. He had a very interesting life. I’m looking forward to reading the collected letters of Vincent Van Gogh and see how I feel about this book afterwards.

Ma il tormento esistenziale di un artista temo che abbia poco a che vedere con quello dell’annoiamento di un lettore. The writing was vivid at best, it was as if Stone read the letters and just put action to them. Since I can’t make up my mind which it is, I have compromised with a 3-star rating. Its stlne for me to believe that Van Gogh was as innocent as he comes across to the reader of this book.
