Vincent Van Gogh (Volume 1: Drawings / Volume 2: Paintings)

£45.00

Product description

This slipcased set of two volumes contain beautifully reproduced paintings and drawings that VIncent Van Gogh wished to be remembered by. These include his extraordinary still lifes, landscapes, portraits, and self-portraits. More than 500 drawings in glorious colour and crisp black-and-white photographs.

there is some damage to the slip case - please see photos - but the books inside are in great condition.

From Publishers Weekly
A man possessed, van Gogh transformed himself over a 10-year period from a somewhat awkward, overwrought sketcher into a master painter. His best work in both media is abundantly sampled in this magnificent set, the catalogue of a large retrospective held concurrently at two museums in the Netherlands on the centenary of the artist's death. Essays provide insight into how this dissatisfied experimenter viewed his own output ( The Starry Night "said nothing" to him). We are also able to situate the paintings in a biographical context. The color reproductions--hundreds of them--are glorious, the commentaries consistently interesting. The volume devoted to drawing rescues a body of work from undeserved, comparative obscurity; here we see van Gogh the doer and pragmatist, using charcoal, pencil, chalk, ink, watercolor, in whatever combinations needed, to penetrate the secrets of what he was observing.
