"A unique and riveting exploration of art, artists, and brotherly love."—The Horn Book, starred review
"Vincent van Gogh is perhaps one of the best-known artists today, but it’s likely he wouldn’t be nearly as famous had it not been for his brother Theo, an art dealer who supported his troubled brother and championed his paintings until his own untimely death, only months after Vincent’s." --Booklist, starred review
