Vincent van Gogh : the Life by Steven Naifeh( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith have written another tour de force-an exquisitely detailed, compellingly readable, and ultimately heartbreaking portrait of creative genius Vincent van Gogh. Working with the full cooperation of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Naifeh and Smith have accessed a wealth of previously untapped materials. While drawing liberally from the artist's famously eloquent letters, they have also delved into hundreds of unpublished family correspondences, illuminating with poignancy the wanderings of Van Gogh's troubled, restless soul. Naifeh and Smith bring a crucial understanding to the larger-than-life mythology of this great artist-his early struggles to find his place in the world; his intense relationship with his brother Theo; his impetus for turning to brush and canvas; and his move to Provence, where in a brief burst of incandescent productivity he painted some of the best-loved works in Western art. The authors also shed new light on many unexplored aspects of Van Gogh's inner world: his deep immersion in literature and art; his erratic and tumultuous romantic life; and his bouts of depression and mental illness. Though countless books have been written about Van Gogh, and though the broad outlines of his tragedy have long inhabited popular culture, no serious, ambitious examination of his life has been attempted in more than seventy years. Naifeh and Smith have re-created Van Gogh's life with an astounding vividness and psychological acuity that bring a completely new and sympathetic understanding to this unique artistic genius whose signature images of sunflowers and starry nights have won a permanent place in the human imagination

Jackson Pollock by Melvyn Bragg( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a massive canvas laid out flat on the floor, he would start with one innocuous dribble of paint. By the time he was done, a virtually indescribable festival of design and color had emerged. Jackson Pollock embodied many of the artistic stereotypes. Impetuous and imperious, conceited and prone to despair, he generated an extraordinary output that thrust American painting in a whole new direction. Friends and colleagues chronicle Pollock's unique artistic journey while opening a window into his private life. And visits to famed collections showcase his revolutionary paintings
