by [Art Letters] Van Gogh, Vincent.

Publisher Information:
New York Graphic Society, New York: 1961.

A Near Fine copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket, with a small closed edge tear to front panel and touch of wear to spine. The poet W.H. Auden selected this collection of Van Gogh's personal letters on those which addressed the most important fact of his life: that he was a painter of pictures--pictures that changed the direction of modern art. This selection are confined to Van Gogh's reflections on the art of painting and the problems of being a painter. The letters to his family members are included insofar as they reflect on his life as a painter. Illustrated with 8 tipped-in color plates of paintings and 24 drawings in black and white.
