Lust for Life

Lust for Life (1934) is a biographical novel written by Irving Stone about the life of the famous Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh and his hardships. It was Stone’s first major publication, and is largely based on the collection of letters between Vincent van Gogh and his younger brother, art dealer Theo van Gogh. This correspondence lays the foundation for most of what is known about the thoughts and beliefs of the artist. Stone conducted a large amount of “on-field” research for the novel, as is mentioned in the afterword.
