Van Gogh in Saint-Rémy and Auvers
Ronald Pickvance, Vincent van Gogh, Metropolitan museum of art (New York, N.Y.). Department of European paintings
Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1986 - Art - 325 pages
Van Gogh in Saint-Remy and Auvers is the sequel to the highly acclaimed exhibition catalogue Van Gogh in Arles. The seventy paintings, eighteen drawings, and one etching selected for the present volume--drawn from public and private collections throughout Europe, the United States, and Asia for exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art--include some of Vincent van Gogh's most famous images. Remarkable for their intensity and clarity of expression, they trace the development of van Gogh as an artist from May 1889, when he left Arles for a private asylum in Saint-Remy-de-Provence, some fifteen miles northeast of Arles, to his death in Auvers-sur-Oise, near Paris, in July 1890.
