Reviews

work of art


(4 stars)

surprisingly good, I thought this would be boring but it turned out to be as much a work of art as Vincent's actual art 🤔

Very revealing...


(5 stars)

I really loved every minute of this. Though I had already known bits and pieces of van Gogh's life it had so much more meaning to hear it in his words. The narrators also did a wonderful job.

Very instructive on art


(5 stars)

Listening to Van Gogh's letters is not only instructive but soothing. You feel his love of life and passion for painting. I learnt such a lot...

Poetic words read full of sentiment
