This documentary shows Vincent van Gogh as an artist and person, from his childhood in Brabant, his laborious years of apprenticeship in Nuenen, his artistic coming-of-age in Paris, to the exhilarating peak of his career in the south of France. Experts at the Van Gogh Museum speak of Vincent’s sources of inspiration and show how he struggled to become a truly modern artist. The DVD shows the most stunning paintings and drawings and contains unique film footage of all the places where Van Gogh lived and worked.

The 15-minute bonus DVD offers a view of the two largest Van Gogh collections in the world, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, and features interviews with members of the artist's family who bear witness to the special ties they have to their distant uncle.
