Vincent in Brixton
Before he knew he was a painter, brash, young Vincent van Gogh lived and worked in South London for three years as an art dealer, an experience that his mother would later recall as altering her son’s character. The emergence of genius and the costs of an extravagantly sensitive sensibility are the subjects of Nicholas Wrights 2003 Olivier Award-Winner. Extrapolated from Van Gogh’s personal family correspondence, Wright weaves a rich, detailed exploration of the nature of artistic inspiration through an unlikely romance, a love made all the more unpredictable by the involvement of genius.
"A wonderful portrait of the unpredictable nature of love. especially of a genius in love."
