Vincent van Gogh may be the best-loved artist in the world today. His brilliant colors and energetic brushwork have a passionate appeal that touches nearly everyone. Few people, however, are familiar with van Gogh_s drawings. Van Gogh: Master Draughtsman will bring the reader to a new world of this astonishing artist_s imagination, a sensuous world of toned papers, vibrant lines of chalk and pen, veils of watercolor and pastel, and sparkling white highlights. Here we can truly see the artist at work, forming his first ideas, thinking them through, and bringing them to dazzling maturity. Created by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam to accompany a traveling exhibition of the master_s works on paper, this beautiful book will be an indispensable joy and resource for artists and art lovers everywhere. Lavishly illustrated with 163 plates in full color, the panoply of van Gogh drawings is presented here in full flower.
