More About This Title Vincent van Gogh & the Colors of the Wind


Vincent van Gogh was a complicated person. No one understood that better than his younger brother, Theo. While others saw Vincent as a madman, wandering into the fields with his canvases and paintbrushes, Theo knew that he saw the world like no one else did. And even though Vincent struggled with mental illness and poverty, Theo recognized his incredible artistic talent—as the rest of the world now does.
Inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s letters, with illustrations modeled after his famous paintings, this lyrical story provides a thoughtful and fresh look at the life of one of history’s most beloved artists.
