Just as Richard III is remembered mainly by his humped back, his attitude to his nephews, and his ill-luck at Bosworth, Van Gogh is perhaps to many of us little more than an eccentric Dutchman of genius who painted sunflowers and cut off his ear. If we know no more of him than that - and even if we know a great deal more-this evening's programme should do much to enlighten us. Van Gogh was not only one of the most remarkable of all the post-impressionist painters but one of the most fascinating, most puzzling personalities in the whole history of painting, a character comparable with Strindberg or Dostoevsky.
Fortunately Van Gogh expressed himself on paper as well as on canvas, and his letters - particularly those to his brother, the only contemporary who believed in his genius-are very moving documents.
