The Artist and MeBook - 2016
Vincent van Gogh is now known as an acclaimed, incomparable Post-impressionist painter. But when he lived in Arles, France, in the 1880s, he was mocked for being different. Back then, van Gogh was an eccentric man with wild red hair who used clashing hues to paint unusual-looking people and strange starry skies. Children and adults alike called him names and laughed at him. Nobody bought his art. But he kept painting. Inspired by these events, The Artist and Me is the fictional confession of one of van Gogh's bullies -- a young boy who adopted the popular attitude of adults around him. It's not until the boy faces his victim alone that he realizes there is more than one way to see the world.
