This is Van Gogh
by George Roddam Author, Catherine Ingram Author and Slawa Harasymowicz Author
This beautiful book is part biography, part anthology, and includes many of Van Gogh's most celebrated works. With full color, full page prints of Van Gogh's paintings and a treasure trove of information about his life, This Is Van Gogh aims to teach the reader about the incredible man behind the paintings. Though Van Gogh is often thought to have been mad, and he no doubt suffered periods of extreme mental anguish, his art is not the product of insanity, and his life story cannot be reduced to his mental health. He famously sold only one painting during his life, yet a few years after his death would widely be regarded as one of the greatest painters of his era. This book celebrates his contributions to the realm of art and offers the curious reader background on this world-famous painter.
