Learning Guide Excerpt
To give you a sense of how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to develop lesson plans, and by parents to supplement school curriculum or for homeschooling, we have set out below the Benefits section of the Learning Guide to Vincent: The Life and Death of Vincent Van Gogh.
Benefits: This movie is visually magnificent. The narrative gives us a window into the hopes and fears of this great artist and of his attitude toward his work. Specific paintings and artistic techniques are discussed as the artist describes for his brother the visual and emotional effects that he was trying to achieve. These letters show van Gogh to be a sincere, caring man who was committed to his art and who was, for most of his life, very lonely. The film also illuminates van Gogh's relationship with his brother, who believed in van Gogh's work and supported him emotionally and financially.
