DESCRIPTION & REVIEWS
The creative genius and artistic determination of Vincent van Gogh distilled into illuminating quotes and sketches.
‘If something in you yourself says “you aren’t a painter” – it’s then that you should paint.’
Gathered into thematic chapters, this little book allows us to feel the immense power of Van Gogh’s talent intimately. Beginning with the question ‘Why Create?’, Van Gogh’s own words, selected from his extensive letters, guide us through Process, Progress and Doubt and offer inspiration on Nature, Humanity and Community. Each quote is illustrated by a fascinating, frequently beautiful, sketch or study from his own notebooks.
A wonderful journey for creatives – with the man who fought harder than almost any other for the right, space and strength to be an artist.
‘Almost no one knows that the secret of beautiful work is to a large extent good faith and sincere feeling.’
