What is there left to say about Van Gogh? A genius who transformed modern art and gave us vibrant, thrilling, unforgettable images. And that’s the trouble. Van Gogh has become so institutionalised that we have ceased to look at him. We love the myth but we don’t know the man. This one-day course will attempt to get to know the man a little better by examining his letters which not only tell us about his life but also about his art. In addition, we will be scrutinising some of his famous and not so famous paintings to see what it is that makes him a great artist, and what it is about his work that we feel speaks to our culture more than any other modern artist.
