This was a fascinating read, starting with van Gogh's life himself and then working the way thorugh all the owners of the portrait, right through to the Japanese ownner in 1990 that paid $82.5 million for it. The first couple of owners were trying to create a market and interest in van Gogh. Amaxing perspective and transitions quickly enough to keep you engaged. One of the books this year I looked forward to getting back to reading each night.
