Vincent van Gogh’s letters are frequently admired for their exceptional literary quality, but there is no extended critique of this aspect of his writing. Addressing key constellations of metaphors and ideas, The Letters of Vincent van Gogh shows the remarkable imaginative coherence underlying the painter’s correspondence and charts van Gogh’s evolving conception of himself as an artist.
