New points of view on the painter’s life are introduced and a foundation is laid for the interpretation of the iconography within his work. The book deduces from the painter’s biography: a previously unexplored interpretation of the final argument with Gauguin; the critical role played by Rachel, la «jeune fille» d’Arles working in rue des Récollets, in the final years of the painter’s life; Theo’s role in quelling the scandal of the December 23rd ear amputation and Gauguin’s ensuing arrest; The author underscores his thesis though a series of details in van Gogh’s works, the painter’s own letters, and by re-visiting well known events in his life.

    I found this book most exciting to read. The Author helped me understand better what Van Gogh was thinking, the troubles he was experiencing and how these effected his work through this troubled period of his life. I now look at Van Gogh's work with more knowledge and pleasure as a result. A must read!!!
