Vincent and Theo: The Van Gogh Brothers
    2017-December-27  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

《梵高兄弟》

This book by Deborah Heiligman is the 2017 winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for Non-fiction.

It explores the complex* relationship between Vincent and Theo Van Gogh as both men tried to define who they wanted to be and to pursue* their dreams. Vincent and Theo lived in the same place as they grew older, but they wrote letters to each other constantly talking about their hopes, failures and details of their daily lives. Of course, they also talked often about art as it related to Theo’s career as an art dealer* and to Vincent’s work as an artist.

These letters serve as a centerpiece* to “Vincent and Theo” and tie together this story of family, friendship, devotion* and art. Short chapters and inventive formatting make familiar information feel novel as Heiligman delves deep into Vincent’s early life, his changing relationship with Theo and his rocky journey as both an artist and a young man. Theo, the lesser known of the brothers, is put in focus equally as he searched for professional success and love.

The book reframes Vincent and Theo’s lives by examining the give-and-take in their relationship and the ways in which the brothers influenced each other. New perspectives* on key moments in Vincent’s life as well as detailed information about the brothers’ early devotion to each other add new insights even for readers familiar with the artist and his work.

The book is available at online bookstores like jd.com.(SD-Agencies)
