The Last Van Gogh

The Last Van Gogh

Author(s): Alyson Richman

Location(s): Auvers

Genre(s): Historical, Romance

Era(s): Turn of 20th Century



This is the story of Van Gogh in the last couple of months of his life, which he spent in Auvers, under the treatment of Dr Gachet, physician with questionable ethics. Marguerite is his daughter, who is inexorably drawn to the hugely talented yet labile artist. This is a remarkable piece of fiction that also depicts the difficult plight of women at the time.
