Vincent van Gogh is one of the most popular artists in the world. Over the course of his tumultuous life, Van Gogh created magnificent and enduring paintings, familiar the world over. This accessible book offers a fresh glimpse at the works of this remarkable late-19th-century painter and illuminates the passion behind his fiery genius. The publication of this book coincides with the exhibition Van Gogh and Gauguin: The Studio of the South at the Art Institute of Chicago, traveling to the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, and the publication of another Artists in Focus title: Gauguin.
