Getting to Know Van Gogh with Alyssa Velazquez
December 8, 2019
In the tradition of Quirk's bestselling Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents, Alyssa Velazquez divulges some of the most outrageous and uncensored profiles of the great artists in Van Gogh and His Inspirations. There will be little known facts, outright bizarre stories, and sheep. Lots of sheep. With these strange but true tales gleaned through her work on the exhibition catalog, Velazquez weaves a narrative of the interconnected artists that directly, or indirectly, influenced Van Gogh.
