This is a recent talk I gave a the Royal Academy of the Arts
As described by the RA:
An evening talk in support of the exhibition ‘The Real Van Gogh: The Artist and His Letters’. Renowned author Martin Gayford brings to life the fraught two months in 1888 in which these two great artists shared a small house in Arles, the tensions that arose and the creative cross-pollination that resulted. Please note that parts of this recording have low levels of audio interference.
