More About Vincent Van Gogh, Julie Aigner-Clark & Nadeem Zaidi
Vincent Willem van Gogh (1853-1890) was born in Holland. He became an assistant with an international firm of art-dealers and in 1881 he went to Brussels to study art. After an unsuccessful love affair with his cousin he returned to Holland and in 1885 he painted his first masterpiece, The Potato Eaters, a haunting scene of domestic poverty. A year later his brother Theo, an art dealer, enabled him to study in Paris, where he met Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec and Seurat, who became very important influences on his work. In 1888 he left Paris for the Provencal landscape at Arles, the subject of many of his best works, including -Sunflowers- and -The Chair and the Pipe.- It was here Van Gogh cut off his ear, in remorse for threatening Gauguin with a razor during a quarrel, and he was placed in an asylum for a year. On July 7, 1890 Van Gogh shot himself at the scene of his last painting, the foreboding -Cornfields with Flight of Birds, - and he died two days later. Ronald de Leeuw has been the director of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam since 1986. He trained as an art historian at the universities of Los Angeles, California, and of Leiden, The Netherlands. As a specialist in nineteenth-century painting, he has been responsible for numerous exhibitions in The Netherlands and abroad, including the 1990 Vincent Van Gogh Centennial retrospective in Amsterdam. Since 1990 Ronald de Leeuw has also directed the Museum Mesdag in The Hague, known for its fine Barbizon and Hague School holdings. In 1994 he was appointed professor extraordinary in the history of collecting at the Free University of Amsterdam. Arnold Pomerans was born in 1920 and was educated in South Africa. He emigrated to England in 1948, and from 1948 to 1955 taught physics in London. In 1955 he became a full-time translator and has had just under two hundred major works issued by leading British and US publishers. Among the authors translated by him are Louis de Broglie, Anne Frank, Sigmund Freud, George Grosz, Jan Huizinga, Jean Piaget and Jules Romain.

colorful and fun Aug 23, 2007
My 1-year-old niece has this book and loves it. The pictures are great -- vibrant and alive. I love how the book exposes little ones to great art. I guess I'm used to abbreviating books when necessary to keep the attention of little ones (I did it for years as a nanny), so to me the text doesn't really matter. Kids like board books for the pictures!
Unfortunately Disappointed Toddler and Mom Jun 12, 2007
This was the first Baby Einstein product we have had experience with, after hearing raves about Baby Einstein music and videos from friends for years. I bought this to read to my 15month old baby, and unfortunately i was disappointed in the book because the text on each page was too long and did not engage the baby at all. I tried to read it to him 3 times and he would be a bit distracted, preferring to look around after the second sentence, but by page 3 he was reaching for another book and wanted nothing to do with this one. Maybe it was meant for older children?? I thought Baby Einstein products were meant for babies? This toddler at least was not interested. He does love his Baby Einstein MINI boardbook called Babies. That one did engage him easily, not sure if it is the simple one line text or the simple/varied types of pictures or both. He has enjoyed other longer texted books in Spanish and one in English (_We're going on a Bear Hunt_), but we had no luck with this one. Hopefully he will like his "El Mundo de Color de Van Gogh" book when he is a little older.
