Van Gogh’s Inner Struggle is a fascinating look into the life of a tortured genius. The letters vividly show the artist's life was no bed of roses. Van Gogh acknowledged that being an artist simply involved struggle, but he believed that one would benefit from adversity, both personally and professionally. "No victory without a battle, no battle without suffering."

Van Gogh in Love is about the story of the artist’s longing for love and a family, exploring the lesser-known area of the artist’s romantic life. As can perhaps be expected from an artist like Van Gogh, his choice of women was unconventional. He favored more mature companions, and pursued relationships with women that were considered unsuitable.

Van Gogh and Money focuses on the artist's financial situation, a subject never explored before. Regardless of the actual amount of money he received from his brother, it becomes clear that Van Gogh was poor in the light of his ambition.
