"This educational documentary focuses on Helene Kröller-Müller and her collection of Vincent Van Gogh art...As portrayed in the early part of this documentary, Helene and Vincent were two souls looking for an absolute kind of faith that couldn’t exist in real life. They both found their spiritual dimensions in the paintings. It is a beautiful tribute from Helene. We explore his life and work through her eyes as his most devoted admirer and owner of the largest private collection of his artwork...Van Gogh: Of Wheat Fields and Clouded Skies is suitable for art majors. They can learn that experimentation leads to self-discovery and embracing one’s individuality." - Video Librarian
