Van Gogh 100

Synopsis

This volume commemorates the 100th anniversary of Vincent van Gogh's death by reexamining the painter's place in the art world of his time, the phenomenal growth in his reputation, and his influence on later art movements and individual artists. Among the topics examined by leading van Gogh scholars are iconography; van Gogh's poetry as well as the literature that influenced him and that he, in turn, influenced; psychological and religious aspects of van Gogh's painting and self-imaging; and how van Gogh has been interpreted. A section on his legacy in art concludes this major reassessment of van Gogh's place in art history.
