Michael will take you on a lively armchair travel adventure to the cities and countryside that was the canvas and home to Vincent van Gogh. Through photographs and stories you will travel from his birthplace in the Brabant region of southern Holland, through Amsterdam to Nuenen where Vincent painted his first masterpiece, and on to Paris, city of the Impressionists, then historic Arles in Provence, and finally picturesque Auvers-sur-Oise where Vincent died and is buried.

Why did Vincent die so young? How did the women Vincent loved change his life and his art? Who really loved him? Where did the inspiration for his art come from? Why has his aesthetic vision endured? Saint James has walked the streets and countryside of Vincent's life in search of clues.

What caused Vincent to cut his ear and then shoot himself less than two years later? How did his unique visual style revolutionize modern art? Why do his paintings remain so popular throughout the world? You’ll hear Michael’s take on these questions based on insight gained by walking in this great artist’s footsteps.

History comes alive standing in the spot where it happened. Come travel along the landscape that shaped Vincent's world and discover a new understanding of his personal struggles.
