A haunting and hallucinatory drama about the making of art, Inventing Van Gogh is the story of the final van Gogh self-portrait, painted just before the artist's death, which has never been seen?until now. Patrick Stone, a contemporary painter, is hired to forge this final masterpiece?and finds himself squaring off, across the years, with van Gogh himself as he attempts to create this masterpiece that never existed... or did it?. The result is a compelling mystery about the obsession to create and the fine line that separates truth from myth and genius from madness.
