Honors Theses

From the title of this Special Studies project it is perhaps difficult to determine that it is about Vincent van Gogh--the sensitive Dutch boy--the passionate artist--the rejected man.

I further will endeavor to prove that Vincent van Gogh was the father of the modern Expressionist movement.
