Art HistoryVincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890) has long been hailed as among the greatest artists of the modern era. He is better known for his vibrant paintings; but behind Van Gogh’s bold use of color is an equally inspired sense of line, perspective, and structure. Largely self-taught, Van Gogh gained his footing as an artist by copying prints and studying nineteenth-century drawing manuals and lesson books, such as Charles Bargue's Exercises au fusain et cours de dessin. His artistic legacy is not only preserved in his paintings and drawings but also in his voluminous correspondence, primarily with his brother, Theo. These letters lay bare his working methods and artistic intentions and serve as a reminder of his brother's pivotal role as a mainstay of support throughout his brief career.
