A post-Impressionist pioneer, Vincent van Gogh (French, 1853-1890)mis also one of the most quintessential “tortured artists” in history. Through his lurid colors and emphatic brushwork, this introductory book by author Ingo F. Walther gathers van Gogh’s most famous paintings to explore his vibrant, feverish portrayal of mood and place and its influence on generations to come.
This richly illustrated introduction follows van Gogh’s story from his earliest pictures of peasants and rural workers, through his bright Parisian period, to his final, feverish burst of creative energy in the South of France during the last two and a half years of his life.
