THE LETTERS PROJECT - VINCENT VAN GOGH'S LETTERS
The Jury greatly admired this fascinating project carried out by the Van Gogh Museum on the Van Gogh letters and the incredible opportunity this project has given to an entire community of researchers and enthusiasts.
Thanks to the digitalisation and free internet access of the research, it is now possible to read the entire archive of letters of the painter in their original version and in translation. It was truly exciting to see the reproduction of the original letters and their iconographic references. The project is an example to the world of how effective it is to diffuse and spread significant items of cultural heritage, contributing to the safeguard of the original autograph material.
