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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Theo Van Gogh 1857 to 1891: Art Dealer, Collector and Brother of Vincent?

Always Overshadowed  Jul 14, 2000
Throughout much of his life the Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh suffered from emotional extremes, alternating from violent excitability to melancholic withdrawal, moods that are often observable in his self-portraits, landscape paintings and so on. As the quintessential expressionist, he has always overshadowed his younger brother, Theo, who supported him both emotionally and monetarily, but who, as this book documents, also pursued a successful career as a Paris-based art dealer. Vincent took his own life in 1890; while Theo died a year later (at age 33), apparently of dementia paralytica, the last stage of syphilis. This beautifully produced book, which consists of three scholarly essays, a chronology and nearly 200 reproductions of historic photographs and works of art, presents an account of the life of the two, while emphasizing the larger context of Theo's activities as a dealer, who was, like his brother, ahead of his time. It was published in conjunction with an exhibition at museums in Amsterdam and Paris in 1999 and 2000 of works bought, sold and/or collected by Theo Van Gogh. (Review copyright © by Roy R. Behrens from Ballast Quarterly Review 15, No. 4, Summer 2000.)
