About In the Footsteps of Vincent van Gogh
What was the secret of Vincent van Gogh’s amazing output—over 800 paintings, created in less than a decade? How did he arrive at such a deeply individual and expressive style of art? And did he truly mean to kill himself in a field outside the village of Auvers-sur-Oise, or was it merely a desperate cry for help?

In the Footsteps of Vincent van Gogh is an immersive journey through the world of Van Gogh, filmed on location at historical sites in Europe and enriched by the voices of fellow Impressionists, as well as the music of his time. Written and directed by Professor Jean-Pierre Isbouts, an art historian, best-selling author, and award-winning filmmaker, the series sets out to answer many urgent questions that remain unsolved to this day.

One thing is certain: Van Gogh is one of the most widely recognized, as well as one of the most widely misunderstood, artists of the modern world. Shrouded in enigma and difficulty from the start, his life was touched by tragedy.
