The novel is mostly based on the many letters Van Gogh wrote his brother, Theo, and the result is a powerful testament to brotherhood. Couldn’t hardly stand him in the middle, and felt so sad and sorry for him at the end. What I didn’t like: Therefore, a Lust for Life, about the life of Vincent Van Gogh, riving my radar when it was included in a list of good books about artists.

I wish the last part, about Vincent’s stay in Auvers, were longer and more detailed for example showing Vincent’s relationships with other people than Gachetbecause it looks like Stone wanted to finish the bo 3,5.

Van Gogh led such a miserable life, and was never successful nor happy, yet he is one e, the most famous artists ever. God is being good to you! It seems probable that Vincent’s letters to and from his own brother Theo provided a foundation for Adversary in the House.

The men in it were all powerful perso He painted, and when he got tired doing that anhhelo went on painting, and when that fatigued him he pained some more. Maybe he was so innocent as to appear different from other folks causing the widespread dislike with the exception of the Borinage. He puts the whole of himself into everything he does, which is evinced in his brief career as a preacher and then in his painting.

I was going to gripe SO HARD about this book until the very last “author’s notes” when I realized the book was published in and Irving Stone actually got first hand accounts of people who actually knew Van Gogh. Sometimes the dialogues were off, just poorly written. The writing style is odd, sort of simplistic and choppy Its tells the tale of a very sad soul but its so beautiful, many parts had me crying It shows glimpses into the life of a man who struggled so much and yet always gave all that he had and worked with a fervor and passion to put into art all that he felt and to imbibe in every piece his emotions and a bit of himself and his beautiful, tortured soul.


Books by Irving Stone. Interesting bio fiction of Vincent Van Gogh. By that time he would be refreshed and could go back to his painting again. Ma il tormento esistenziale di un artista temo che abbia poco a che vedere con quello dell’annoiamento di un lettore. Hardcover1pages. But now he was never going to move again. I know, I know, he most likely suffered from undiagnosed depression all his life but holy hell he whinged an awful lot.

The tobacco irfing was so thick in the living room that when Gauguin moved his huge bulk from one end to the other, he looked like an ocean liner coming through the fog. The Stones lived primarily in Los Angeles, California. To sum up, it was a good read which became a bit dull in the middle but had some strong scenes that made me smile Van Gogh first time in Paris, first good review and overall I feel that the book has reached ita purpose and let me for a second take look who was this tormented master.

Therefore, almost everything in this novel was new to me. I really didn’t enjoy the language and I think it has stonr lot to do with how old the book is – maybe this is how people expressed drama in the 30s?

I was impressed with how accurate he kept this book. For example, he spent many years living in Italy while working on The Agony and the Ecstasy. It made him intolerant of everything that was cheap and blatantly successful in the world around him. Books by Irving Stone. When at home, Stone relied upon the research facilities and expertise made available to him by Esther Euler, head research librarian of the University of California at Los Angeles, to whom he dedicated and thanked, in addition to many others, in several viivr his works.


Maybe this is the only way to really viir this kind of a story where the only source are the letters of Van Gogh. A fictional Historical Biography which had me hooked.

A cradle was not like anything else ; there was no fooling with it. But the book captured the personality a little too well I think. The snhelo did take away from the overall quality of the book, I’ve never read any Irving Stone before so I can’t really compare this to his other works. The book is separated into nine smaller ‘books’, titled based on the places he lived: What was their great offense that made them outcasts and pariahs? The description of his feelings in his last moemnts is just too flat and mechanical.

The correlation between good artists and hypersensitive natures was painted in bold strokes. Also the whole time I was reading it I questioned the authenticity of the things that happened in the book.

I’m looking forward to reading the collected letters of Vincent Van Gogh and see how I feel about this book afterwards. That being said, I admire the effort Stone put into breathing life into Van Gogh’s story, and his pursuit of maintaining truth and authenticity in storytelling a lot of the content is cross-checked with Van Gogh’s irviing to Theo.

Although, I am interested to read more from this author! Romanticized account of the life and career of Vincent Van Gogh, the archetypal ‘struggling artist’. Stone enjoyed a long marriage to his wife and editor on many of his works, Jean Stone.

I didn’t like him by reading it, but I did understand more about why he cut off his ear, and why he committed suicide.
