Starry Night


Commissioned by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Vincent is a moving and affectionate tribute to Vincent van Gogh in the form of a graphic novel, or rather a graphic biography. Part of publisher SelfMadeHero’s “Art Masters” series, the book was created by Dutch comic artist and illustrator Barbara Stok.


The book, which takes an espistolary approach based on correspondence between the artist and his always supportive brother Theo, focuses on Van Gogh’s time in the south of France during the late 1880s.


Graphic interpretations of the artist’s most beloved paintings are interwoven throughout the book. You can learn more about Stok and purchase the book and related artwork on the artist’s website here.
