I should like to show by my work that the heart of such a nonentity, such an insignificant man, conceals.By going along with this today and conforming to that tomorrow, as the world wants, and by not speaking out against the world and by only following public opinion!

Margaret Drabble describes the letters from Drenthe as "heart-breaking", as he struggled to come to terms with the "darkness of his hereditary subject matter", the bleak poverty and meanness of Dutch peasant life. Not long after that he takes in a woman named Sien, a former prostitute, and his letters are filled with his dreams of family life. But that would have been a departure from that place where his heart's joy met what he saw as the world's need. Margot thankfully survived, but it did mean the end of their relationship: she moved to live with a doctor she knew in Utrecht, and Vincent eventually moved to Antwerp.The collection also includes letters van Gogh wrote to his sister Wil and other relatives, as well as between artists such as Paul Gauguin, Anthon van Rappard, and Émile Bernard. about various works, I have taken notes on works so when I go to look at them I can also reflect on van gogh's feelings about the work. An extremely prolific painter with works mainly done in a post-impressionist/neo-impressionist style, some of the works more pointillist than others, Van Gogh's works all seem to have a unique touch of expressionism to them - his style was very distinct and uniquely his own. Looking around the house, I see his artworks are certainly prominently represented: I have an umbrella, shoes, T-shirt, and sweatshirt with Van Gogh's paintings.
