From Dutch news agency ANP:
The letters (from 1881 to 1885) by the painters, according to the museum make for a good perspective into Van Gogh’s artistic developments in his early years.
Axel Rüger, director of the Van Gogh Museum, stated this this Monday.
The museum bought the collection of letters from a US collector who wants to remain anonymous.
Apart from about twenty individual letters which are still private property, this is the last major collection of Van Gogh correspondence which still was for sale. …
The correspondence was mainly about literature and art, both mainly showing their empathy with common people.
‘These are artists’ letters in the true sense of the word’, Leo Jansen of the Van Gogh Museum said on Monday; as opposed to the letters to Vincent’s brother Theo, which are more about family affairs.
Of the 845 remaining letters by Van Gogh, most of them to Theo, about 750 now are property of the Van Gogh Museum.
