THE VAN GOGH: BROTHERS… TO DEATH

People who fortunately has a brother or sister , can not deny that blood always called, no matter what happens, we know he or she will always be there with us. Such was the case of the younger brother of Vincent van Gogh, Theo. Successful art dealer, did all he could for his brother to continue working on his art. He also helped to launch the careers of impressionist painters like Claude Monet and Edgar Degas, but for ethics he could not do that for his own brother. And while Theo was a great art dealer, Vincent managed to sell only a painting: Red Vineyard, which was bought by the Belgian painter Anne Boch. The close relationship between these two brothers is documented in the nearly eight hundred letters that Vincent wrote to Theo.
