Van Gogh's van Goghs : masterpieces from the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam by Richard Kendall ( Book )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1,459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Van Gogh's Van Goghs presents seventy paintings from the extraordinary collection of the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, home to the single greatest assemblage of the artist's paintings, drawings, and letters. The collection is based on works acquired directly from the artist by his brother Theo, an art dealer and the source of Vincent's financial and emotional support. All periods of Vincent van Gogh's brief but intensely productive career are represented: his earliest paintings in The Netherlands; his responses to French Impressionism in 1886; the images he painted while in hospitals in Arles and Saint-Remy in southern France; and his last, feverishly creative works in Auvers-sur-Oise. Van Gogh's Van Goghs represents a unique opportunity to sample the largest and most varied Van Gogh collection in the world. It accompanies a major exhibition organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art."--BOOK JACKET
A real Van Gogh how the art world struggles with truth by Henk Tromp ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
De kunstwereld is tot op heden bezig de echte van de valse Van Goghs te onderscheiden. In 1928 ontdekte de expert J.B. de la Faille tot zijn schrik dat zijn Van Gogh-catalogus tientallen valse werken bevatte. Hij wilde ze uit de catalogus verwijderen, maar stuitte daarbij op verzet van onder anderen handelaren, verzamelaars en critici. Het zou het begin vormen van een heftige belangenstrijd in de kunstwereld. Henk Tromp toont de minder aangename kanten van deze wereld aan de hand van speciale archieven van organisaties en particulieren. Hij laat zien hoe bewondering voor Van Goghs werken en liefde voor de waarheid het soms afleggen tegen hebzucht, vrees voor gezichtsverlies, ideologische verblinding en politieke belangen

And his development as a visual artist. Van Gogh considered reading to be "a matter of importance that greatly influences one's work," and though he resolutely avoided the anecdotal and illustrative in his art, his oeuvre is nonetheless marked by his literary pursuits. In this study, Sund reveals the multiple and often subtle ways in which Van Gogh used nonnarrative imagery to evoke beloved texts. Citing primary sources, she demonstrates that Van Gogh considered French
Van Gogh's sheaves of wheat by Dorothy M Kosinski ( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) viewed wheat as a central metaphor of the cycle of life and the creative process. As such, it was a theme that he consistently explored throughout his career. This book examines the artist's personal and visual fascination with wheat, analyzing the significance that the motif - and by extension, the peasant at work in nature - played within the social and cultural framework of 19th-century France and in the works of other artists of the time." "Focusing on his powerful Sheaves of Wheat from the Wendy and Emery Reves Collection at the Dallas Museum of Art - one of thirteen canvases completed in the last month of his life - this book features illustrations of Van Gogh's works as well as personal correspondence and letters. Related images by such prominent contemporary artists as Emile Bernard, Jules Breton, Charles-Francois Daubigny, Paul Gauguin, Jean-Francois Millet, Claude Monet, and Camille Pissarro are also included. Together these works reveal the larger social and political trends of 19th-century France."--BOOK JACKET
