Item description for Theo Van Gogh 1857 to 1891: Art Dealer, Collector and Brother of Vincent by Chris Stolwijk, Richard Thomson & Sjraar Van Heugten...
Theo van Gogh, Vincent's younger brother, was an influential art dealer working in Paris in the 1880s. Artists and collectors respected him for his insight and integrity, Vincent spoke of his brother's humanity, and Paul Gauguin described Theo's death as an irretrievable loss.
The extensive art collection that Theo built forms the core of today's collection in the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam. Theo van Gogh (1857-1891): Art Dealer, Collector and Brother of Vincent presents his life and work in the context of the French art world of his day. Dazzling illustrations include works by Vincent that held a special significance for Theo, as well as a representative selection of the works Theo bought and sold as a dealer. The book provides a fascinating study of the sympathetic and intelligent art expert Theo van Gogh and a lively portrait of European painting in the second half of the 19th century.
