Vincent Van Gogh, 1853-1890: Vision and Reality

Vincent Van Gogh, 1853-1890: Vision and Reality

One of the good forerunners of twentieth century painting

This richly illustrated and specialist examine follows the artist from the early gloom-laden work during which he captured the distress of peasants and employees in his place of origin, via his vibrant and vibrant Parisian interval, to the paintings of his ultimate years, spent less than a southern sunlight in Arles. right here, eventually, he stumbled on the sunshine that produced the unmistakable Van Gogh sort. At Arles, Saint-Rémy and Auvers-sur-Oise, within the feverish burst of artistic power that marked his final two-and-a-half years, he produced the 465 work on which his immortality rests.

Van Gogh craved attractiveness in the course of his lifetime yet was once denied it until eventually after his self-inflicted loss of life. at the present time he's universally noticeable as one of many nice forerunners of portray of the twentieth century, and one of many tragic masters of art.
