Vincent Van Gogh : portrait of an artist by Jan Greenberg ( Book )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 1,961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Vincent van Gogh₆one of the 19th century's most brilliant artists will forever be remembered as the Dutchman who cut off his ear. But this incident only underscores the passion that consumed him a passion that, when he took up painting at age 27, infused his work. Whether painting a portrait, a landscape, or a still life, Van Gogh sought to capture the vibrant spirit of his subject. It didn't matter that others found his work too unconventional. Van Gogh persevered. And as he moved from the cold climate of Holland to balmy southern France, he pioneered a new technique and style. In a career spanning only a decade, Van Gogh painted many great works, yet fame eluded him. This lack of recognition increased his self-doubts and bitter disappointments. Today, however, Van Gogh stands as a giant among artists. Grade 5 and up

Vincent Van Gogh portrait of an artist by Jan Greenberg ( Recording )
2 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Traces the life of 19-century Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh, with excerpts from correspondence with his brother Theo and full-color reproductions from his work. Vincent Van Gogh-one of the nineteenth century's most brilliant artists-will forever be remembered as the Dutchman who cut off his ear. This incident underscores the passion that consumed him, a passion that also infused his work. Whether painting a portrait, a landscape, or a still life, Van Gogh sought to capture the vibrant spirit of his subject. And as he moved from Holland to southern France, he filled his canvases with vivid color and thick, lush brushstrokes that pioneered a new technique and style. Still, fame eluded him. This lack of recognition-over a career spanning a mere decade (from ages twenty-seven to thirty-seven)-fueled his lifelong self-doubt and bitter disappointments. Today, however, Van Gogh's paintings are recognized as masterpieces, and the tormented Dutchman stands as a giant among artists
