“This beautiful book seeks the secrets of Van Gogh’s final months.”                                                 

— Vriendin Magazine


The Last Van Gogh is a balanced symphony… Richman’s style is gentle and sober. With clear, undulating prose, that is both reminiscent of the quiet village [of Auvers] and the oppressive environment of Marguerite Gachet’s home, it is as evocative as one of Van Gogh’s paintings. Richman proves she can travel through time to recreate the past.”

— Andy Arnts, En Route Magazine


"The Last Van Gogh paints an intricate portrait of a woman's life at the end of the nineteenth century… It is a powerful and poignant story."

— Tulip Magazine, Holland
