Description

This magnificent boxed-set features stunning, accordion-fold, color reproductions of Van Gogh's essential works, accompanied by a separate booklet with background and descriptions of each painting

Van Gogh's brilliant colors and expressive brush strokes come vibrantly to life in this sumptuous book that features approximately fifty of his most important works in generous accordion-fold pages.

The large-format reproductions, printed on heavy stock, are presented chronologically, allowing for a close study of Van Gogh's development as an artist. In addition to his more well-known works, such as Irises, The Starry Night, Sunflowers, the Bedroom, Almond Blossom andWheatfield with Crows, readers will also discover how he experimented with landscape, still life and portraiture and how his influences changed over his brief but prolific career to embrace Impressionism, Neo-Classicism, and Pointillism, and incorporated elements of Symbolism as well as the techniques of Japanese woodcuts.

An accompanying booklet features thumbnails of each painting along with captions that highlight key elements, as well as a brief appraisal of his life and work. Both volumes are encased in a sturdy slipcase. The set is a must-have for fans of Van Gogh and an excellent resource for understanding why he remains one of the world's most beloved painters.
