What is included with this book?


A month before his suicide in 1890, Vincent van Gogh wrote to his sister, "What impassions me most -- much, much more than all the rest of my metier -- is the portrait, the modern portrait." In the course of his short, intense career he revolutionized portrait painting, decisively influencing its course in the twentieth century.
