Today, Vincent van Gogh's (1853-1890) artworks are universally acclaimed and cherished. Whether it's his iconic pieces like Sunflowers, The Starry Night, or Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear, or his vast repertoire of paintings and drawings, we witness the remarkable talent of an artist who adeptly conveyed mood and atmosphere using various mediums such as paint, pencil, charcoal, or chalk.

While van Gogh employed vivid colors, expressive brushstrokes, and distinct forms that would later define his artistic style, he faced significant challenges. His works failed to captivate the interest of his contemporaries, and he also battled severe mental illness. Episodes of depression and anxiety plagued his life, ultimately leading to his tragic suicide shortly after his 37th birthday in 1890.

This captivating introduction delves into van Gogh's journey, beginning with his early depictions of peasants and rural laborers, his vibrant period in Paris, and culminating in his final, fervent burst of creativity during the last two and a half years of his life in the South of France. Illustrated with a wealth of images, the book unravels the captivating story of Vincent van Gogh, shedding light on his artistic evolution and the remarkable legacy he left behind.

    About the Artist

    Vincent van Gogh

    Vincent van Gogh (1853 — 1890) was a Dutch post-impressionist painter who posthumously became one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. In a decade, he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of which date from the last two years of his life. They include landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits, and are characterized by bold colors and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art. He was not commercially successful, and his death at 37 came after years of mental illness, depression and poverty. Today, van Gogh is one of the most widely recognized and celebrated artists in the world.
