Van Gogh Letters
The Real Van Gogh: The Artist and His Letters opens at the Royal Academy of Arts on Saturday 23 January and continues until 18 April. This major exhibition sets out to dispel the popular notion that Van Gogh was merely a loony with earache. On display for the first time are many of his personal letters, which reveal him to be an intelligent and cultivated man. Even if you think his daubs are wildly overrated, this display of paintings and letters promises the visitor a fascinating insight. Cost of admission? Don't ask. Click the title link.
