Vincent & Theo van Gogh: A Dual Biography is the first English biography to chronicle the life not only of Vincent, but also of his younger brother Theo, the Paris art dealer who made Vincent's work as an artist possible. Little has ever been published about Theo, & yet, as his grandson Johan van Gogh explains in the Preface, "Without the moral & financial support of Theo, Vincent could not have produced his vast oeuvre." The monthly allowance that Theo sent his brother was, for almost ten years, Vincent's only source of income. In a letter discovered in Vincent's pocket after his death, he wrote, "My dear brother,...I tell you again that I shall always consider you to be something else than a simple dealer in Corots, that through mediation you have your part in the actual production of certain canvases, which will retain their calm even in catastrophe." Art historian Jan Hulsker has published numerous books on Van Gogh, including The Complete Van Gogh, considered to be the authoritative catalogue of Vincent van Gogh's works. In 1989 the Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences awarded him the distinguished silver medal for his contribution to Dutch art & literature.

For Vincent and Theo Whose undying love and loyalty for art goes beyond the flourished minds and hearts of those who know, there is more to life than what is seen with the human eye. To those who listen to the soulful sounds that sunflowers make while dancing with the eternal wind of fire, for the tip of your brush holds purpose. Grow in peace. Paint the heavens with pearl diamond thoughts that radiate echoes of laughter. Dance with the sun, kiss the moon, hold the sea in your arms while the wind whispers to the Golden Dove. Grow in joy as you wake up the souls of those who are passionately evolved with kindness and gentleness, for they weave their way onto your canvas. Such giving spirits ...

Vincent van Gogh’s life was driven by passions, from the religious to the romantic. These passions illuminated his work as an artist, but also led to his many disappointments in life. Whether attempting to be a missionary, falling in love with his cousin, sheltering a prostitute and her children, proposing to his neighbor’s spinster daughter or establishing an art colony with Paul Gauguin failure haunted him. Although his uniquely vibrant colors and dramatic brushstrokes redefined impressionist painting, success eluded him. Only after his tragic death was his artwork finally recognized for its intensity, appeal, and enduring impact.

Creativity and Psychotic States in Exceptional People tells the story of the lives of four exceptionally gifted individuals: Vincent van Gogh, Vaslav Nijinsky, José Saramago and John Nash. Previously unpublished chapters by Murray Jackson are set in a contextual framework by Jeanne Magagna, revealing the wellspring of creativity in the subjects’ emotional experiences and delving into the nature of psychotic states which influence and impede the creative process. Jackson and Magagna aim to illustrate how psychoanalytic thinking can be relevant to people suffering from psychotic states of mind and provide understanding of the personalities of four exceptionally talented creative individuals. Present in the text are themes of loving and losing, mourning and manic states, creating as a process of repairing a sense of internal damage and the use of creativity to understand or run away from oneself. The book concludes with a glossary of useful psychoanalytic concepts. Creativity and Psychotic States in Exceptional People will be fascinating reading for psychiatrists, psychotherapists and psychoanalysts, other psychoanalytically informed professionals, students and anyone interested in the relationship between creativity and psychosis.

The definitive work on the profound and surprising links between manic-depression and creativity, from the bestselling psychologist of bipolar disorders who wrote An Unquiet Mind. One of the foremost psychologists in America, “Kay Jamison is plainly among the few who have a profound understanding of the relationship that exists between art and madness” (William Styron). The anguished and volatile intensity associated with the artistic temperament was once thought to be a symptom of genius or eccentricity peculiar to artists, writers, and musicians. Her work, based on her study as a clinical psychologist and researcher in mood disorders, reveals that many artists subject to exalted highs and despairing lows were in fact engaged in a struggle with clinically identifiable manic-depressive illness. Jamison presents proof of the biological foundations of this disease and applies what is known about the illness to the lives and works of some of the world's greatest artists including Lord Byron, Vincent Van Gogh, and Virginia Woolf.

Vincent van Gogh was a tormented man. From a young age, he was troubled by fits of depression. After a string of unfulfilling jobs and failed relationships, he found that painting would relieve him from his suffering. Even so, he cut off part of his left ear in a fit of rage. While in the hospital, doctors tried to diagnose his melancholy. Once he was released, he continued to paint. In a remarkable career that spanned a little over ten years, he turned out hundreds of paintings, including at least forty self-portraits. And then, before he was forty years old, he took his own life. Few other artists have been as successful in expressing their feelings as Vincent van Gogh. Dozens of his works are considered masterpieces. Scholars continue to try to diagnose his mental state—and wonder at the talent that was lost.
