Very thorough look at the relationship between Vincent Van Gogh and his younger brother Theo. I learned so much about Vincent's art, his life, and how significant Theo's support was (emotionally, professionally, and financially). Direct quotes from letters between the brothers and the author's use of detail really helped transport me back in time. Some parts dragged for me a bit, due to the sheer amount of information, but overall, the book was very engaging.
