vangoghletter“There is scarcely one letter by Van Gogh which I, who am certainly no expert, do not find fascinating.”            – W. H. Auden

Fifteen years in the making, the Van Gogh Museum and the Huygens Institute in The Hague have just released a comprehensive, annotated edition of Vincent van Gogh’s letters, which serve as a remarkable self-portrait of an extraordinary man.

This compilation contains over 900 letters and 4,000 illustrations, including sketches that accompanied his correspondence, as well as works of art (by Van Gogh and others) which are referenced in the letters.
