Lost along the way, you keep on searching
Even if you plunge into the vortex, I’ll follow you

If Vincent van Gogh didn’t have the support of Theo van Gogh, would The Sunflowers have a chance to rise from the vortex?
The world has long considered Vincent van Gogh as either an artistic genius or a deluded madman … He was resolute when he gave up his conventional career and embarked on a rocky road in pursuit of his art. Although Theo was no less talented or dedicated to art, he had chosen an entirely different career path, building his business as an art dealer. What lies behind the masterpiece?
Separated for long periods, the two brothers counted on each other, supported each other and influenced each other’s artistic choices. So much in the siblings’ letters is shaded in light and darkness, emanating both puzzlement and enlightenment.
