  • Summary:

    Through fifteen of Van Gogh’s letters to his relatives written over the 17 years before his death, Danijel Zezelj reveals the joys, sorrows and violent turmoil of the tortured soul of this artist. Through panels illustrated with disturbing charm and dark power Zezelj traces the mental decay of this possessed painter. He takes us into a dark and sublime world of black and white. The famous Dutchman’s thoughts take shape in the silent panels of this Croatian comic artist, who reveals, with a lasting mastery, the contrast between Van Gogh’s correspondence and the feverish state of his psyche. In this open interpretation of image and text, Zezelj paints a portrait of the horror of the creative process of one of the greatest artistic geniuses of the 19th century.
