Abstract

He wrote beautiful letters. Tracing his intellectual sources, we found things we didn't know before," researcher Leo Jansen said. "We can see the complete scope of his visual input." In one case, the researchers deciphered a note from van Gogh to Paul Gauguin that had been scribbled and then erased on the back of a sketch that the Dutchman sent to a friend, Eugene Boch. The note told Gauguin that, like a diamond from deep in the earth, art comes from deep within the artist, and urged Gauguin, "not to lower our prices," said Jansen.
