Munch : Van Gogh by Edvard Munch( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in 3 languages and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work and artistic ambitions of Edvard Munch (1863-1944) and Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) show interesting parallels. They are known for their emotionally imbued paintings and drawings, their personal and innovative style and their tormented lives. Both strived to modernise art and developed expressive imagery to portray the universal emotions of human life. In 'Munch : Van Gogh', these similarities are focused on for the first time. The exhibition studies the essence of their art, their artistic ambitions, the development in their style and technique and the influences to which they were subjected. This shows why these artists are so often mentioned in one breath. With over one hundred art works including various iconic masterpieces and special artworks which are rarely loaned out ; the two artists are brought together on a large scale for the first time. Exhibition: Munch Museet, Oslo, Norway (5.-9.2015) / Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, the Netherlands (24.9.2015-17.1.2016)

The Dutch in Paris : 1789-1914 : Van Spaendonck, Scheffer, Jongkind, Maris, Kaemmerer, Breitner, Van Gogh, Van Dongen, Mondrian( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the nineteenth century, Paris was the centre of the art world. The hundreds of Dutch artists who travelled to the French capital between 1789 and 1914 included Jongkind, Breitner, Van Gogh, Van Dongen, and Mondrian. Their encounters with French artists and a wide array of art, styles, motifs, techniques, and ideas brought about fundamental changes in their work and thought. By examining nine Dutch artists who spent longer or shorter periods in the French metropolis, this richly illustrated book explores an era of stimulating artistic exchange and sheds new light on the circumstances that turned Paris into a melting pot where the foundation was laid in the nineteenth century for a truly international art."--Back cover

'Manch einer hat ein großes Feuer in seiner Seele' Die Briefe by Vincent van Gogh( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Briefe von Vincent van Gogh sind ein Stück Weltliteratur. Als Schriftsteller war er so talentiert, wie er als Künstler bahnbrechend wirkte. Die neu übersetzte Auswahl seiner wichtigsten Briefe bietet zum ersten Mal in deutscher Sprache den originalen Text. Diese Briefe sind ein Fenster zur Seele eines Ausnahmekünstlers, der mit dem Leben wie mit der Kunst kämpfte und verzweifelte, der das Größte wollte und erreichte. Van Gogh war ein höchst schwieriger Mensch, ein gewaltiger Egozentriker, und sein Leben entgleiste ihm mehr als einmal. Doch seine Vision der Kunst, seine Ambitionen, seine Gedanken über die Gesellschaft und das menschliche Dasein konnte er mit bestechender Klarheit entwickeln. Die Briefe, die er oft in innerer Einsamkeit verfasste, sind Dokumente einer großen Suche, bei der stets viel auf dem Spiel stand. Gleichzeitig berühren sie durch ihre unverfälschte und sprachmächtige Prosa. Diese Neuübersetzung beruht auf der preisgekrönten Neuedition sämtlicher Briefe Van Goghs, die 2009 nach 15-jähriger Forschungsarbeit erschien. Der mit Leineneinband, Schuberschlaufe und Lesebändchen prächtig ausgestattete Band präsentiert zudem die 110 Zeichnungen, die Van Gogh seinen Briefen beigab – Meisterwerke von einer großen Unmittelbarkeit. Van Goghs Briefe leuchten hier in ihrem ursprünglichen, teils hellen, teils dunklen Glanz – ein unvergleichliches Zeugnis der menschlichen Existenz
