Overview

Vincent van Gogh travelled widely through various countries in Europe – on foot, by boat and, above all, by train. He wrote countless letters to his family as he went, and used the world around him as the subject for hundreds of drawings and paintings. And in his day, that world looked very different from ours.

Brimming with colourful pictures, historic photographs, letters, detailed maps and other documents, this book enables readers to join Vincent on his journeys from Z to A: from Zundert in the southern Netherlands (where he was born), through London and Paris, to Auvers-sur-Oise in France (where he died).

Offering a detailed introduction to Vincent’s personal quest and the contemporary world of his time, this book will immerse young readers in the history of the 19th century and the turbulent life of Vincent van Gogh, the artist and man.
