The eight early twentieth century artists that we researched each represent or impact the Harlem Renaissance through their art. While I was searching, I was surprised to notice names such as Van Gogh and Picasso appeared on our list, but after further research it began to make sense that if artists went to Europe, they were bound to bring back art styles that were common in Europe.

His biographers have studied these letters extensively and extracted each and every information about him to understand his personality and nature. Certain interpretations have also been made about the paintings that he made from the narratives that he made in his letters. About the letters of Van Gogh, Washington Post wrote ‘Van Gogh’s letters….are one of the greatest joys of modern literature, not only for the inherent beauty of the prose and the sharpness of the observations but also for their portrait of the
