Summary
In the summer of 1890, in the French town of Auvers-sur-Oise, Vincent van Gogh shot himself in the chest with a revolver. He died two days later, at the age of thirty-seven, largely unknown despite having completed over two thousand works of art that would go on to become some of the most important and valued in the world. In this riveting novel, Carol Wallace brilliantly navigates the mysteries surrounding the master artist's death, relying on meticulous research to paint an indelible portrait of Van Gogh's final days'and the friendship that may or may not have destroyed him. Telling Van Gogh's story from an utterly new perspective'that of his personal physician, Dr. Gachet, specialist in mental illness and great lover of the arts'Wallace allows us to view the legendary painter as we've never seen him before. In our narrator's eyes, Van Gogh is an irresistible puzzle, a man whose mind, plagued by demons, poses the most potentially rewarding challenge of Gachet's career. Wallace's narrative brims with suspense and rich psychological insight as it tackles haunting questions about Van Gogh's fate. A masterly, gripping novel that explores the price of creativity, Leaving Van Gogh is a luminous story about what it means to live authentically, and the power and limits of friendship.
