    You always get to know anything new from these books. In this case, I didn’t know about his religious family. Neither did I know that he translated the bible into different languages!! I also learnt more about his depression, and the exact date when he decided to slice his own ear off. Finally, I didn’t know anything about his caring brother, Theo. His whole life was devoted to van Gogh’s well-being, even at the expense of losing his job. A very recommended and refreshing overview.

    This is a Hourly History ebook, it was a good short overview about Vincent Van Gogh, he began drawing at an early young age and continued painting until his death at age 37. In his earlier years he took a break from his paintings and studied the Bible and translated it into six different languages.

In his earlier years he took a break from his paintings and studied the Bible and translated it into six different languages. Later picking up his painting again, he traveled to numerous cities, always meeting up with other artists trying to find better techniques of drawing and painting. He was depressed and sad most of his life. Getting so angry he cut off his own ear, he was bleeding bad and a doctor found him and saved him. The book tells about his two marriages. It's sad that he did not become famous until after his death. His wife and his brother held numerous art exhibits showing hundreds of Vincent Van Gogh's painting that he had done throughout his lifetime to honor him. I enjoyed this book. I recommend it to everyone.

    I was swept away by this short biography. I had heard the story before of Vincent Van Gogh slicing off his ear but there was so much more to the story that I didn't know. How very sad that Vincent shot himself, most likely because he did not want to be a burden on his brother any longer. How very interesting that his brother Theo, who cared for Vincent much of his life, soon died a few months after his brother and all the artwork went to Theo's wife who had only met Vincent a few times.

It is remarkable to realize that only five years had occurred between what Van Gogh considered his first break through art, "The Potato Eaters," to his last work of art, ""Wheatfield with Crows."

    A Quick Overview I loved this book because it was not pretentious, nor was it tedious. It allowed me to gain an introductory awareness of Van Gogh without investing more than a few hours of time. It’s a full storyline, not a chopped up fact sheet. I am grateful for this interesting book. If it had pictures referenced with it, it would be perfect.

    Having read about and watched movies about Vincent van Gogh, I thought I knew about this difficult artist.  It was a shock to learn that Vincent was the 6th child, and first son, of an upper-middle-class Protestant minister and his wife.  At 16, he quit school and went to work as an apprentice in the company of Parisian art dealers.  Interestingly enough, his brother Theo followed him to the same company but eventually worked in Brussels, while Vincent worked in London.

After Vincent quit working with the art dealers, he had a religious conversion.  When he repeatedly failed at getting a ministerial position, his father suggested putting him in a lunatic asylum.  That caused a break between father and son.  In 1880, Vincent, who was a self-taught artist, moved to Brussels to study under Willem Roelofs. The story, as told in this book, shows that Vincent had severe mental health issues.  One particularly telling comment:  "For van Gogh, painting was not an exercise in exploring the magic and mystery of the world but a consolation from the sadness of his life."    Throughout this story, I am in awe of Theo, the younger brother who so lovingly took care of Vincent.  Theo must have been devastated when Vincent died, by his own hand, at 37.  This is a tragic story, told compassionately.

    Let me say at the outset that I love this series. These short books are concise yet informative, and this is the 3rd book of the series I have read. Van Gogh is my favorite artist. I knew a little about him, but I wanted a better background before tackling another book on my TBR list. I was startled to learn that the theologian Henri Nouwen argued that van Gogh was a saint (I read that elsewhere). Knowing that van Gogh had been mixed up with alcoholism and prostitutes, I was really curious as to Let me say at the outset that I love this series.

I was startled to learn that the theologian Henri Nouwen argued that van Gogh was a saint (I read that elsewhere). Knowing that van Gogh had been mixed up with alcoholism and prostitutes, I was really curious as to why a theologian I respected would make such a seemingly outrageous claim. After reading this book, I think I understand a little better. The author did an excellent job of revealing van Gogh's struggles with mental illness while allowing the beauty of soul that is so obvious in his work to be clearly seen. Actually, I do have *one* criticism: the author alludes to various paintings but does not include images in the book. That is totally acceptable for famous works that everyone knows, but I found it inconvenient to have to put my Kindle down to look them up.

    Fame Comes After Death I am not a big fan of van Goghs style but I did enjoy reading this brief bio of his life which was tragic and sad for most of it. He seemed like a man who really struggled to find himself and never really did. He was mentally unstable and frequently went home to live with his parents although he and his father had a difficult relationship. If it weren’t for his brother, Theo, he probably would have died much sooner and possibly never been discovered as a great artist.

    I was familiar with a few of van Gogh's more famous paintings and I knew of his struggle of his struggle with mental illness and the incident of cutting off his ear. Other than that, I knew little of the story of his life. This concise book did a good job of covering that. Although short, it contained plenty of facts. It covers the friction between his father and him, and his lifelong struggle with mental illness which was most likely bipolar disorder or what used to be called manic-depression.

Among other things covered were his life of living in poverty, his lifelong journey of developing his own style, the devotion of his brother Theo, his transition from the religious life to that of an artist, the fact that his paintings didn't sell and weren't realized or appreciated until after his death, and that success eluded him due to his life being tragically cut short. The book provided good coverage of a short life and I found it interesting to read.

    very well written It is concise and neatly organized. After reading this, though, I feel like Van Gogh might be overrated. I think reading this book was time well-spent, nonetheless.
