Baker & Taylor
A critical analysis of the visionary paintings, technical artistry, and troubled personal life of the great nineteenth-century painter is enhanced by dramatic, full-color reproductions of some of his finest works.

Book News
An excellent introduction to the life and work of Van Gogh suitable for younger students as well as adult art lovers. The volume sidesteps the "lust for life" over-dramatization, sticking close to the facts of his childhood, youth in Paris, later years in Arles, relationships with other artists and their influence on him, and, of course, the work. The text, translated from Italian, is simple in tone and style without sacrificing information, and is positioned around clever illustrations or photographs of selected paintings with amazingly graphic details that even show brush strokes.
