Thanks to the van Gogh Museum & Huygens Institute-KNAW, Vincent van Goghâ€™s letters have been made accessible online! Not only are the letters useful as research resources, they also make for an interesting read. Reading van Goghâ€™s letters provide an opportunity to get to know the artist on a more personal level.
The website is designed wonderfully so that you can search and read van Goghâ€™s letters in various orders. You can read the lettersÂ thematically, according to recipients or like us, read them chronologically. It has been a great treat to read and learn about van Goghâ€™s thoughts and activities.
EachÂ letter is displayed in Dutch and English, as well as a digital copy of the handwritten letter. If that was not impressive enough, they have cleverly composed footnotes to provide interesting contextual information and display images of his paintings.
