I had read this book in a library, while I was looking up books about painters. I ended up reading two books about Vicent that time and this was one of them. I always had a soft spot in my heart for this painter. While it is true that I'm a lover of art, I find Vicent's paintings to be particular...

As a person who was not aware of the works of Vincent van gogh, I was surprised to read about the biography of the artist marred by trouble, depression, sadness and failures. For the 1st time, I could truly appreciate his use of dark tones, social themes and shades in his pieces, a result of his...

Non solamente i dipinti meravigliosi, ma anche una prosa incredibile hanno contribuito al mio voto finale -non che non sapessi già in partenza che sarebbe stato questo. Nonostante il mio interesse per Van Gogh, temevo che sarebbe stata una lettura un po' prolissa (è pur sempre una monografia di 70...

I was having withdrawal symptoms from Amsterdam, and decided to read this. A beautiful collection, which would be a perfect gift, and a wonderful coffee table book to dip in and out of.

While it's nice to peruse a compendium of my favorite artist's work, there were two major problems with this work. The first is unfortunately inherent in van Gogh's work, and that is how printed facsimiles of his paintings never come close to the full register of color and sheer power of the orig...

These books are an invaluable resource to anyone studying Van Gogh, because they truly carry every painting and many of the sketches and drawings that the prolific Van Gogh did in his brief career. They are arranged in chronological order and that made them very useful as I was reading The Letter...

Vincent is by far the most imaginative, passionate, witty and influential painter ever lived, and very souful, helpful, empathetic and hardworking man- a real human being- fantastic artists and amazing personality. The work by Mr Metzger and his collegues is complete, amazing and essential for eve...

Vincent Van Gogh, a perfectionist without a doubt. For starters his story holds so much, everyone would know him as the Man who has a severed ear, but he’s so much more than that. His letters are the reason why you should start knowing him better, he’s a deliberate artist, him and his extraordina...

(it's been 2 years! I did it!) the book is highly informative, which is not surprising considering it's over 700p long.

The set is a beautiful hardcover collection of Van Gogh's work, as well as a riveting biography of his troubled life. I own the 2-volume boxed set (1994). I purchased it 'previously enjoyed', on Alibris, and it is evident what a bargain this is! I've read that the newer edition of this book relea...
