Preserved thanks to a series of random circumstances, Vincent's correspondence van Gogh (1853-1890) with his younger brother Theodorus constitutes unparalleled testimony of the existence of the great painter, but also of his pictorial and spiritual evolution. In there are the personal and conscience crises, the incessant economic troubles, the hopes and disappointments, but most of all Van Gogh's feverish passion for painting. His paintings and drawings, valued little or nothing in life, have ended up becoming, paradoxically, in treasured pieces from art collections, in addition to reaching millionaire figures in auctions and settling among the most favored by the public.
