From Vincent to Theo by Federica Fragapane

The project is a visual analysis of the letters written by Vincent van Gogh to his brother Theodorus ("Theo") between 1873 and 1890.

For each letter an automatic linguistic extraction has been performed via a collaboration with Antonio Zampolli Institute of Computational Linguistics and ItaliaNLP Lab.

On each year the otal number of letters, city from where the letters were written and total number of written words are shown. The relevant terms and nouns have been extracted from each letter and the words have been grouped into 10 categories.

This analysis allows to explore the correspondence between Vincent van Gogh and his brother Theo.
