What did Vincent read? – Van Gogh Museum

Vincent loved literature. In general, the books he read reflected what was going on in his own life. When he wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a minister, he read books of a religious nature, and he devoured Parisian novels when he was considering moving in the French capital. During the many setbacks he faced later in his life, literature was something that kept him going.
