Just like that wonderful day in high school when the yearbooks arrived, our offices are filled with excitement and the smell of freshly bound pages as our newest title, “Art + Travel: Step Into the Lives of Five Famous Painters” were dropped off this morning. A unique tour through five European culture capitals, “Art + Travel” walks you through the footsteps of Goya, Vermeer, Van Gogh, Munch, and Caravaggio, showing you where they lived, worked, studied, and sometimes died. Combined with directions to and through relevant sites, museums, and the best local places to drink, eat, and sleep, “Art + Travel” transforms any European tour into a journey through a genius’ life. Just take a look at on little bit of our walk through Van Gogh’s life excerpted from the book below and learn how his residence at a Saint-Rémy mental hospital influenced one of his most famous works.
Like what you see? This is only just the very tippety-top of a very large iceberg. Keep chasing Van Gogh by picking up a copy of “Art + Travel” at a local retailer in March or pre-ordering online at Amazon.
