The Literary Van Gogh

February 2 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The Brush and Pen Salon Presents:
The Literary Van Gogh
The Letters: Life as Painter and Writer
Moderated by Therese Wolfe

Most of us are well acquainted with Vincent Van Gogh’s singular genius through his breathtaking paintings. Lesser known to the public, however, is that Van Gogh was also a prolific writer and voracious reader. He was fluent in three languages: Dutch, his native tongue, French, and English, and he wrote proficiently in all three languages. Out of the 820 surviving letters, 651 are to his brother, Theo. The letters “offer personal insights which give lie to the idea that Van Gogh was a ‘reckless and unreflective genius’.”*

We will be reading, examining, and discussing, in round table fashion, some of Van Gogh’s letters to his brother and other painters, such as Paul Gauguin and Emile Bernard, as “a rich source of information about Van Gogh’s gripping life story and exceptional work.”**

Please join us in this Salon, the first in a series of four, which—with the exception of Van Gogh, who is his own literary influence—will explore relationships between writers and painters and the way they influence each other.

And bring a friend!
