Vincent - The Full Story


Sunday 16 May 2004

Sunday Times art critic Waldemar Januszczak presents a landmark story of the life of Vincent van Gogh. Over three programmes, he follows the turbulent road the artist took, physically and mentally, revealing the truth behind iconic works such as Sunflowers, his enduring relationship with his brother Theo, and his suicide.

On this website, we pick up clues to his personality, such as his manic daily walk to work across London in his early career as an art dealer, and the use of symbols such as the empty chair. Leading from Vincent's career progression, we also discover the double lives of other artists, go back to school to learn art terms and offer a bluffer's guide to becoming an artist, selling and buying art.
