Review: Personal Recollections of Vincent Van Gogh

Personal Recollections of Vincent Van Gogh Personal Recollections of Vincent Van Gogh by Elisabeth Huberta Du Quesne-van Gogh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved Personal Recollections of Vincent Van Gogh by Elisabeth Huberta Du Quesna-Van Gogh so much that I have already read it two times. I have been a fan of Van Gogh and was required to study him in college, as an art student. I was lucky enough to see many of his original pieces that were displayed at galleries across the USA a few years ago. I became interested in why he chose to paint differently than the other artists of his time.

This book goes more into who Van Gogh was as a person and discussed his personal experiences that influenced his artwork. There is little talk if line quality, nor color, but more talk about who Van Gogh was as a person, which I find most interesting. His travels and the poor people he met along the way had a huge effect on him and therefore on his artwork.

This book is a good read about Vincent as a person and how he translated his feelings for the poor and unfortunate people he lived with and among during his many travels. I love his artwork, but anyone who also wants a glimpse at Vincent Van Gogh as a person and to understand him, who he was, and how that came across in his work, should definitely read this book. I received this book free for the purpose of providing an honest review.
