The Yellow House

I am currently reading The Yellow House: Van Gogh, Gauguin, and Nine Turbulent Weeks in Arles by Martin Gayford. Based on research, letters, and art Gayford has written a very intriguing novel-like account of the months that Van Gogh and Gauguin lived together. As an artist, it is very insightful always to get into the mind of another artist. Van Gogh and Gaugain differed greatly on a number of artistic philosophies, and the dialogue between them is priceless. I have blogged about Van Gogh before, and I want to really recommend this book to artists and creative thinkers alike. It is intellectually gratifying as well as a stunning story.
