Van GoghBook - 1996
-This book traces the brief and troubled life of van Gogh, one of the greatest artists of all time: his birth in a Dutch village, his travels in Belgium and England, his arrival in Impressionist Paris and his discovery of the delights of the south of France, where he died aged only thirty-seven.-It shows how, in spite of suffering mental crises and inner turmoil, van Gogh always continued to search for ways of painting that expressed the true essence of his subjects.-It looks at his unique use of color, which puts his work among the most innovative and original of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.-It contrasts the way in which van Gogh's work was disregarded in his time with the exceptional value of his paintings today.
