Description of this Book

From humble beginnings in Nuenen and Antwerp to his last month in Auvers-sur-Oise, this captivating book on Vincent Van Gogh's life and works is the perfect introduction for all students and art lovers interested in late nineteenth-century and Post-Impressionist art. Featuring fifty of his finest works, each painting and drawing is described and analyzed in beautiful detail, within the context of the period, so that the reader can really understand what the artist was hoping to achieve with each work. Drawing from the many letters that Van Gogh wrote to his brother, friends and others, curator John Cauman provides an enthralling and accessible narrative about the artist and his work, introducing the milieu, key characters and themes and legacy that continues to this day. Among the fifty paintings featured, this book includes The Potato Eaters (1885), Pere Tanguy (1887), Self-Portrait in Front of the Easel (1888), Sunflowers (1888), Cafe Terrace at Night (1888), Bedroom in Arles (1888), Van Gogh's Chair (1888), Portrait of Joseph Roulin (1889), Irises (1889), The Starry Night (1889) and Wheatfield with Crows (1890).
