Quarto Books
01 September 2021
A captivating and definitive account of the final days of Van Gogh's life and the incredible story of what followed.

Divided into three parts, the book first examines the eventful days from the artists' departure from the asylum in Saint-Remy and arrival in Auvers until the shooting which brought his life to an end. During this time Van Gogh completed 70 paintings in 70 days. The second part delves deeper into the story of the artist's death, which has intrigued both experts and the public for years, revealing little-known stories and uncovering overlooked accounts. We then follow the story of how Van Gogh subsequently rose from relative obscurity to international renown and ultimately fame as one of the most recognisable and popular artists in the world.
