Van Gogh – Challenging the ‘Tortured Genius’ Myth | Tate

We explore how it is no longer useful to think of Vincent van Gogh’s talent as a result of his poor mental health.

This video contains language used by Van Gogh to describe his mental health. The way we speak about mental health has progressed since then and is always developing the more we understand.

This video was produced in collaboration with Mind, a charity that supports those with mental health problems.
