Item description for I, Van Gogh by Isabel Kuhl...
The many facets of Vincent van Gogh's life and art are explored in this unusual and beautiful tribute to the artist's world, words, and work.
During his brief and troubled life, Vincent van Gogh completed more than 800 paintings, but sold only a single picture before he committed suicide in 1890. Now his paintings bring millions at auctions and are among the most recognizable images in art. Art historian Isabel Kuhl offers new insights into the life and artworks of the visionary artist in this multi-dimensional exploration, which uses superb reproductions, informative maps, and the artist's own words to immerse readers into the time and place in which van Gogh painted. Excerpts from Vincent's correspondence with his brother, Theo, are displayed alongside details from the artist's paintings, offering readers a deeper understanding of his inspirations and emotions. Information about where van Gogh's paintings can be seen today, a timeline of the important events in his life, and a bibliography of relevant sources round out this penetrating look at an artist whose work continues to move audiences around the world.
