Vincent van Gogh took to painting when he was 27 and his death came at the age of only 37. Van Gogh’s brother Theo was a strong supporter of his and their surviving correspondence provides a fascinating insight into the great painter’s inner world. His letters to Theo are as sincere as a cry from the heart: Vincent saw his dear brother and himself as a whole and would often write “we” instead of “I”. Researchers of the oeuvre of Van Gogh are confident that the latter would have never made it but for Theo. The exhibition presents an exciting first-person narrative making an excellent accompaniment to Van Gogh’s unique canvases.© 2016-2018 moscovery.com
