This book focuses on an area of Vincent Van Gogh's life that isn't widely known: his relationships with all of the women in his life, and the impact they had in shaping not only his personal life, but his artistic masterpieces as well. Through personal letters (written by Van Gogh himself, as well as other important figures in his life) the author is able to construct a new perspective of the artist's personal life. By examining Van Gogh's various relationships, the reader is able to obtain a better glimpse of the artist as a person, and his struggle to not only survive as a painter, but also gain acceptance from those around him.
