The blooming fruit orchard, luminous fields of grain, countless self-portraits and, naturally, sunflowers: almost everyone with an interest in art is familiar with the fabulous paintings in which Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890) captured the landscape and atmosphere of Provence in such an unmistakable way. This native of the Netherlands is among the most popular painters in the history of art not only due to the expressive masterpieces he feverishly created during his stay in Arles in the south of France, but also to the artist tragic life story; he received little notice during his lifetime and committed suicide at the age of thirty-seven. By means of over two hundred magnificent reproductions, this volume presents the entire spectrum of van Gogh art, sheds light on all facets of his work, and tells the passionate story of the life of this sensitive observer. Excursions dealing with special aspects of his work, as well as an extensive timeline that places his biography in the historical and cultural context of the nineteenth century, round out the presentation.
