Vincent by Himself by Vincent van Gogh

Book Description

The universal appeal of Vincent's paintings and drawings, those that are little known as well as those familiar and much loved images, is enhanced by his own account of his life and thought contained in his letters. In quantity and quality of writing they are unique among those of great artists. Most were written to Theo - his brother, patron and anchor and to him we owe an enormous debt for encouraging, supporting and preserving the writings and works of a troubled genius who, in a tragically brief ten years, progressed to a climax of highly original and productive creativity. This selection of extracts from the letters and more than 230 paintings and drawings - many reproduced for the first time - has been designed for all lovers of Vincent's work. It will appeal equally to those who are familiar with it and his life and who no longer need biographical or analytical texts to complete their enjoyment of the pictures as well as to the many with less knowledge who feel no less intensely the power of his art.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » This combination of pictures and writings by Vincent van Gogh conveys with vivid directness the intelligence and genius of one of Europe's greatest artists. The juxtaposition of familiar images with extracts from his writings offers a new perspective on van Gogh's work. Taken mainly from his letters to his brother, patron and anchor, Theo, they reveal the extent of Vincent's troubled genius as he progressed in ten short years to a climax of highly original and productive creativity. First published in 1985, the book contains over 230 reproductions of van Gogh's paintings and drawings and will appeal to all lovers of his work, however deep their knowledge. (Kirkus UK)
