Van Gogh, Hardback Book



Bold strokes of genius. This is the amazing work of a tormented soul. Vincent van Gogh's story is one of the most ironic in art history.

He lived an unhappy and difficult life during which his work received almost no appreciation - finally killing himself by a bullet to the chest, so great was his despair - and is now widely considered one of the most important painters of all time, his works fetching record prices of tens of millions of dollars at auction.

This comprehensive study of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) represents a rarity in art history: a detailed monograph on his life and art combined with a complete catalogue of his 871 paintings.

These volumes also reproduce most of van Gogh's paintings in color.
