Our books about the extraordinary life and legacy of Vincent van Gogh are without doubt the most illuminating and enjoyable to read, and written by some of the foremost scholars on the celebrated artist.

Ton de Brouwer is recognized in the Netherlands as an expert on Vincent, especially with regard to his early years in the small Brabant town of Nuenen. Ton’s book Van Gogh en Nuenen (now in its Third Edition in Dutch) is also now available for the first time as Van Gogh and Nuenen in English.

Art historian and lecturer William J. Havlicek’s acclaimed book Van Gogh’s Untold Journey is based largely on Vincent’s astonishing letters of which over 900 exist. This important work, the result of over 15 years of research, provides new insight into the artist’s true character nurtured from his abiding faith, the influence of family, and the tender solicitude he felt for mankind.

And now authors David Glen and William Havlicek, in their seminal work Johanna: The Other Van Gogh, tell the story of the remarkable woman who changed the history of art and who has to a large extent been hitherto ignored: Johanna van Gogh-Bonger, Vincent’s sister-in law. For it was Johanna who, after the deaths of Vincent and Theo, became keeper and advocate of Vincent’s immense collection of paintings, sketches, and illustrations, and made it her life’s work to promote Vincent’s art.

She was moreover to preserve and chronicle over 520 hand-written letters (eventually more than 900 would come to light) without which we would never have come to understand the devoted relationship and interdependency Vincent had with his brother Theo, nor the remarkable beneficence that lay at the very core of the Van Gogh family itself. And most importantly, we would never have come to know the uncommon genius that was Vincent van Gogh.
