Details of Vincent van Gogh’s fascinating life and travels are comprehensively described and stunningly illustrated in The Vincent van Gogh Atlas – from the tranquil though sometimes poverty-stricken countryside of the Netherlands, to the chaotic colours and lifestyle he encountered in the south of France. Also included are his metropolitan visits, including his experience of artistic and bohemian life in big cities such as London, Paris and Amsterdam.
