A Librarian Reads…

Vincent and Theo: The Van Gogh Brothers by Deborah Heiligman

Virtually everyone knows Vincent Van Gogh, painter of Starry Night, Sunflowers, The Potato Eaters, and so many other great works. And they’ve probably heard stories about his life, how unappreciated his work was, his madness, his suicide. But there is so much more to know about not only Vincent, but his brother Theo, who supported him throughout his entire career. Without Theo, there would be no Vincent.

This biography moves through short, succinct chapters focusing on the two brothers using letters they’d written or were written about them to provide specific details. Told in present tense, it moves you through their live. Recommended for readers in high school and up who are fans of art and Van Gogh or love detailed biographies.
