The Life and Art of Vincent van Gogh
Vincent van Gogh used art to express his intensely emotional response to the world around him. Enraptured by the beauty of nature and tormented by the sorrows of human existence, he produced in his tragically short life some of the most powerfully expressive paintings ever seen. Van Gogh famously sold only one painting during his life, but within a few years of his death he was recognized as one of the greatest modern painters. This visual biography tells his most remarkable life story with all the vivid color, churning emotion, and lust for life that van Gogh embodied and captured on canvas.
