    About "Vincent van Gogh H. Anna Suh"

    1. Vincent van Gogh H. Anna Suh

      Vincent Willem van Gogh, for whom color was the chief symbol of expression, was born in Groot Zundert, Holland The son of a pastor, brought up in a religious and cultured atmosphere, Vincent was highly emotional and lacked self confidence Between 1860 and 1880, when he finally decided to become an artist, van Gogh had had two unsuitable and unhappy romances and had worked unsuccessfully as a clerk in a bookstore, an art salesman, and a preacher in the Borinage a dreary mining district in Belgium , where he was dismissed for overzealousness He remained in Belgium to study art, determined to give happiness by creating beauty The works of his early Dutch period are somber toned, sharply lit, genre paintings of which the most famous is The Potato Eaters 1885 In that year van Gogh went to Antwerp where he discovered the works of Rubens and purchased many Japanese prints.In 1886 he went to Paris to join his brother Th o, the manager of Goupil s gallery In Paris, van Gogh studied with Cormon, inevitably met Pissarro, Monet, and Gauguin, and began to lighten his very dark palette and to paint in the short brushstrokes of the Impressionists His nervous temperament made him a difficult companion and night long discussions combined with painting all day undermined his health He decided to go south to Arles where he hoped his friends would join him and help found a school of art Gauguin did join him but with disastrous results In a fit of epilepsy, van Gogh pursued his friend with an open razor, was stopped by Gauguin, but ended up cutting a portion of his ear lobe off Van Gogh then began to alternate between fits of madness and lucidity and was sent to the asylum in Saint Remy for treatment.In May of 1890, he seemed much better and went to live in Auvers sur Oise under the watchful eye of Dr Gachet Two months later he was dead, having shot himself for the good of all During his brief career he had sold one painting Van Gogh s finest works were produced in less than three years in a technique that grew and impassioned in brushstroke, in symbolic and intense color, in surface tension, and in the movement and vibration of form and line Van Gogh s inimitable fusion of form and content is powerful dramatic, lyrically rhythmic, imaginative, and emotional, for the artist was completely absorbed in the effort to explain either his struggle against madness or his comprehension of the spiritual essence of man and nature.

    1. I am reading Van Gogh's letters for the first time and I find that although this paperback version of a coffee table book seems voluminous, it is actually very readable and digestible. Van Gogh wrote more than 700 letters to his brother and friends so going through them all may be a bit difficult for a beginner like me. This volume extracts the more important and interesting letters and organises them according to major phases of his creative output including:1) the earlier years (his 20s) when [...]


    2. This is a beautiful and enlightening collection of Van Gogh’s letters in the context of the drawings and paintings that they refer to. The book is well printed on heavy paper, and the reproductions seem quite good. There are reproductions of many of the actual physical letters becaues they often include sketches of the works that Van Gogh was drawing or painting at the time. It also provides the translations of the letters, and representative drawings and paintings. Most of the letters are to [...]


    3. Given to my by one of my best friends for my 28th birthday. The actual book is gorgeous, a tactile experience to read in and of itself, with thick, almost silky pages. Stunning full color images throughout combined with visually appealing formatting make for a reading experience anyone can appreciate, an artist or not!


    4. I think Van Gogh's paintings are enhanced by these letters. It shows his drive to succeed as an artist but never making it during his life. Without these letters, would we know what it's like to be an artist?


    5. Being able to read Van Gogh's words while perusing his work provides wonderful insight into the mind of a true artist.


    6. Amazing read. I researching a movie screenplay involving Van Gogh and this will be invaluable in developing dialogue for it. The printing of Van Gogh's work in the book is top notch as well.
