Description
Paris, the late 19th century. Theodorus van Gogh, renowned art dealer and branch manager of the prestigious Goupil & Cie, seeks to embrace new talent and techniques among up-and-coming painters.

But this was a dark era for innovative artists in France, the field being dominated as it was by the privileged and the conservative who thought that art was the sole property of the upper echelons of society and that common folk were inherently incapable of appreciating it.

Theodorus struggles to bring works which appeal to the hard-working masses into the limelight and usher in a new era. Central to his ambitions is his lifelong desire to see his brother Vincent's "god-given gift" finally being acknowledged by the world.

Ranked #1 in Kono Manga ga Sugoi! 2014 for women.

A lovely story, but...

...if you're a stickler for historical accuracy, it may not be to your taste. As the summary implies, Sayonara Sorcier is an unusual take on the life of Vincent van Gogh through the eyes of his younger brother and closest confidant, Theodorus.

Though the plot revolves around the artist, the protagonist is his brother; and while the strong bond between the siblings born mainly of Theo's devotion to Vincent and his unwavering faith in, and support of, his brother's talents is historically accurate, the rest is not. The mangaka has put her own spin on the well-known events of the van Gogh brothers' lives, and while I found it interesting and refreshing, those who prefer to stick to the facts may be irritated, despite the plot providing a reasonable explanation for this deviation from historical accounts. You have been warned.

Personally, I was engaged by the crisp art style, the matter-of-fact but emotionally meaningful style of storytelling, and - principally - Theo: an intelligent, complex and charismatic man who, in his own way, is just as tragic as his brother.

Tl; dr: Recommended for lovers of atypical josei, with the above caveat.

I always like Hozumi-sensei's arts and stories so this one is definitely catch my eye. Eventhough it's only four chapters, I feel like the characters are amazing and the struggles they face are drawn beautifully. I love how Hozumi-sensei describe the relationship between the Theo and Vincent and I can't wait to see more.
