The Best of his Letters

Five years after the launch of the successful six-volume publication Vincent van Gogh – The Letters, the Van Gogh Museum is collaborating with numerous international publishers to produce an anthology featuring a selection of his finest correspondence.

In addition to 265 of his letters, the publication features a general introduction, historic family photographs and reproductions of 100 letters containing sketches by Van Gogh. The editorial team behind the complete edition (Leo Jansen, Hans Luijten and Nienke Bakker) also compiled this anthology and supplied the introduction to the selection.

This anthology was published in the Netherlands, North America and Norway in 2014. The Italian edition was launched in 2013.
