Van Gogh: An Appreciation of His Art
Though his career spanned less than ten years, Vincent Van Gogh produced a body of work that remains one of the most enduring in all of modern art. This book is an intriguing look at a creative genius and his compelling art, illustrated with 142 full-color reproductions. Van Gogh pioneered a use of color and perspective that influenced succeeding generations of painters. Tracing his development from his early beginnings in Nuenen and Paris to his work in Arles and Saint-Remy in particular, this volume studies a prolific career marked by greatness and ultimate tragedy.
