Matthew McGoff, The Echo of an Artist

Published on Dec 22, 2012
"I never met Matthew McGoff. By the time he died in 2010, just short of his 50th birthday, he no longer had a fixed place to live and his alcohol abuse had gotten the better of him.

How do you judge a person's life. By his achievements? Accolades? By how many people there are who loved him? And what if he is a troubled artist who dies young. An artist with a character deeply flawed in some respects and admirable in others. And who can tell for sure the worth of his greatest painting?"
