Van Gogh at work by Marije Vellekoop( Book )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) is often considered to be a genius in a class of his own, an exceptional self-taught artist who paid little attention to the art world around him. In reality, Van Gogh learned extensively from others, exchanged ideas with his contemporaries, and often made use of prevailing methods and techniques to hone his skills. This book explores the workmanship behind his artistry. The reader follows Van Gogh's quest to perfect his skills and the way he adopted various drawing and painting techniques; acquired information about materials; learned about the physical characteristics of canvasses, paint, paper, chalk, and other materials; how he approached working on paper and canvas and which factors influenced his working practice. Showing his work alongside that of other artists demonstrates the degree to which he followed examples set by his contemporaries. Van Gogh's working methods are explored along with his most famous works, addressing topics as the use of a perspective frame, color theory, the influence of contemporaries and the famous repetitions of a theme as in the Sunflowers and the Bedroom series
Picasso in Paris 1900-1907 by Marilyn McCully( Book )

20 editions published in 2011 in 4 languages and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1900, at around the time of his nineteenth birthday, Pablo Picasso went to Paris to visit the Universal Exhibition and to have his first experience of the art capital of the world. His training had been in provincial Spanish art schools, but the following year he was offered a large exhibition at the prestigious Vollard Gallery and he became familiar with the bohemian district of Montmartre and its gaudy pleasures. Yet only a few years later he was challenging Matisse for the position of leader of the French avant-garde and was set on his revolutionary path as a universal artist. This book follows Picasso's discovery of art and life in the French capital and examines his response to specific artists, including Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Steinlen, Puvis de Chavannes, Rodin, and Cézanne. He soon began to forge a personal style, drawing on the process of painting itself, which blurred the traditional distinctions between imitation and reality, culminating in perhaps the most seminal painting of the twentieth century, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon."--Publisher's description
On the verge of insanity : Van Gogh and his illness by Nienke Bakker( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mental state of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) has been a perennial source of discussion and conjecture since his death by suicide. Was he mentally ill or a genius? What was the precise nature of Van Gogh's illness? Did it influence his work? This intriguing publication examines how Van Gogh's mental condition revealed itself in 1888 and how he struggled with it throughout his life. Van Gogh's letters to his brother Theo, his artist friends, and his sister Willemien reveal that his primary reason for living was his art. Richly illustrated with artworks, letters, previously unpublished historical documents, and photographs, 'On the Verge of Insanity' provides a nuanced and considered overview of an extraordinary man who had to cope with mental illness at a time when the symptoms were readily misunderstood and professional treatment was insufficient. The authors also offer a detailed account of the circumstances surrounding Van Gogh's death in Auvers-sur-Oise, and they review the many diagnoses that have been proposed since the artist's death

Van Gogh & Japan by Louis van Tilborgh( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and Dutch and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vincent van Gogh's (1853-1890) encounter with Japanese ukiyo-e prints during his time in Paris was decisive for the direction that his art would take in the years to come. He enthusiastically assembled a collection of the prints with the idea of dealing in them, and soon was captivated by their colorful and cheerful imagery and style, which began to exert a dramatic influence on his own work. Gradually this enchanted world became his main artistic reference point. From then on, he positioned himself as an artist in the Japanese tradition in order to gain a reputation with the avant-garde of the day. This gorgeous publication offers a detailed reassessment of the impact Japanese printmaking had on Van Gogh's creative output. Featuring essays by the world's leading Van Gogh experts, this book details the ways in which the artist constructed his understanding of a Japanese aesthetic and his utopian ideal of a so-called primitive society, and incorporated these into his own vision and practice. The size, nature, and importance of Van Gogh's own collection of Japanese prints are also explored. Lavish illustrations include oil paintings and drawings by Van Gogh as well as a selection of the Japanese works that so captured his imagination

6 editions published in 2015 in English and French and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through painting, photography, sculpture, the decorative arts and cinema, as well as wealth of documentary material, the exhibition Splendours & miseries : images of prostitution in France, 1850-1910 is an invitation to examine in depth topics that resonate with contemporary preoccupations. Moving back and forth between the levity that we find in the shows and press illustrations of the day and the gravity of prostitution-related issues (the status of women and wasys and means to their emancipation, gender relations, sex and marriage, etc.) it shows how the clash of sex and money is a core feature of creative powers."--Page 10

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
