An African American boy from New York City meets Vincent Van Gogh in Central Park and the two of them set off across the city painting the NY sights. After a while, Vincent must leave, but first he takes Bernard to the art museum where he falls in love with art and is inspired to draw.

A fun book that makes an art legend accessible. Several of Van Gogh's more famous drawings are recreated in the book as well as pictures of New York in his artistic style.
