This is the story of the passionate, revolutionary artist Vincent van Gogh and his art-dealer brother, Theo. The two were very close, and when Vincent moved to the countryside to be inspired by and paint nature, they wrote long letters to each other. Art was Vincent's means of personal and spiritual redemption, and the correspondence between Vincent and Theo seeks to offer young readers insight into the struggles of being an artist. The work traces Vincent's life and art with anecdotes and descriptions, such as how Theo introduced Vincent to Paris's most advanced painters, and how Vincent's work changed under the influences of Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Georges Seurat and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. There are artistic exercises and games that are designed to engage children directly in the act of learning, by asking questions about the paintings and by suggesting activities that will help young people truly understand how a painting is created.
