Van Gogh: The Taste of Our Time

By Albert Skira; Charles Estienne et al. | Go to book overview

CHAPTER ONE
THE WORLD OF VAN GOGH

ā˜…
THE EVANGELICAL TRADITION
MEMORIES OF REMBRANDT
HUMAN REALITIES
AND THE IDEALIZATION OF MAN
FROM THE INNER LIGHT
TO THE POETRY OF COLOR

Although in Van Gogh's art color came to assume a constructive value that revealed a new way of rendering space, it stood at the same time for something more than that. For the great Dutchman, color was essentially a medium of expression in which he couched the symbols of his inmost feelings. And if we are to grasp the moral significance of some of his most important works, we must trace them back to the emotions from which they stemmed. The following essay, with the carefully chosen plates that accompany it, throwing new light on the genesis of Van Gogh's world, thus seemed called for at the threshold of this book.
