Theo & Vincent

Theo & Vincent

I really don’t have any friends except for you and when I feel bad you are always on my mind’.         (Dutch translation: ‘Ik heb eigentlijk geen vriend behalve U en als ik beroerd ben zijt gij me altijd in de gedachten’).

This quote from Vincent’s letter to his brother Theo on the 22nd of July 1883, perfectly reflects the strong bond between the two brothers. The above oil painting depicts the connection between the brothers, with Theo (on the left) and Vincent (on the right) bound together as one.
