Van Gogh and Gauguin letter tells of artistic hopes that turned sour

Van Gogh and Gauguin letter tells of artistic hopes that turned sour | Art for art's sake... | Scoop.it
'Electrifying' missive written by artists on pages of French exercise books goes on sale in Paris next month...

 

The handwritten letter, penned jointly by Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin on cheap paper torn out of a school exercise book, speaks of friendship and hope. Written at a critical point in the careers of both men, it refers to dreams of founding a utopian community of brother artists, of a new artistic renaissance, and of paintings now recognised as masterpieces.

 

Truly fascinating stuff. Owe to own such a moment in art history!
