Vincent van Gogh continues to fascinate more than a century after his death in 1890. Yet how much of what is commonly known about this world-renowned artist is accurate? Though he left thousands of works and a trove of letters, the definitive Van Gogh remains elusive. Was he a madman who painted his greatest pieces in a passionate fury or a lifelong student of art, literature and science who carefully planned each composition? Was he a loner dedicated only to his craft or an active collaborator with his contemporaries? Why is he best known for self-mutilation and "The Starry Night"? This book has biographers, scriptwriters, lyricists, actors, museum curators and tour guides, among others, presenting diverse interpretations of his life and work, creating a mythic persona that may, in fact, help us in the search for the real Van Gogh.

Vincent Van Gogh, perhaps the greatest and most influential painter of the nineteenth century, committed suicide at the age of thirty-seven. He sold only one painting in his lifetime. Was he motivated by mental illness or despair when he put a revolver to his chest or was his physician partly to blame? Here, in this short-form book by Pulitzer-Prize winning biographer and historian Ted Morgan, is the intriguing answer.

Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) is one of the greatest figures in Western art. Revered for his bold, expressionist paintings, he is also admired as a prodigious and eloquent letter writer. His correspondence displays a remarkable literary gift and an ability to communicate his ideas and feelings about nature, art, and life in direct, emotive language. Illustrated with works of art and letters that demonstrate Van Gogh’s abiding preoccupations--the role of color in painting, the cycles of nature, and friendship, for example--this fascinating book explores the correspondence as a self-portrait of the artist and the man. The letter-sketches that Van Gogh used to describe completed works or those in progress are reproduced here alongside the finished paintings or drawings, providing a unique insight into his artistic development. Drawing on new and extensive research, leading authorities on Van Gogh reveal how the letters enhance and shape our view of this modern master.

The prints and drawings of Vincent van Gogh (1853–90) include some of the world's best-known, most popular, and most valuable pieces. This volume is a catalog of van Gogh drawings and prints that are currently under the care of the Kröller-Müller Museum, located near the village of Otterlo in the Netherlands. Catalogued for the first time in 1917, these works have undergone four different editions of the cataloguing process by four different members of the museum staff since World War II alone, and always in the company of van Gogh's more famous paintings. Now, for the first time, the drawings have been studied independently, and the information gathered here presents a remarkably clear overview of the present scholarship and art historical research on the authenticity, dating, provenance, and exhibitions of the work. Differing in many ways from the last collection catalog of van Gogh's drawings and paintings (which was published nearly thirty years ago), this volume not only produces new information on the provenance of certain works, but frequently comes up with a sharper analysis of the techniques and materials used by the artist, as well as new dates for individual drawings. Doubts that have arisen about the authenticity of certain juvenilia by van Gogh are here provided with a well-reasoned foundation, and with the publication of this edition—which complements a 2003 catalog of van Gogh's paintings—a period of intensive research on van Gogh's works in the collection has been brought to a close, culminating in this impeccably researched catalog and its accompanying wealth of full-color images.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “The definitive biography for decades to come.”—Leo Jansen, curator, the Van Gogh Museum, and co-editor of Vincent van Gogh: The Complete Letters Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, who galvanized readers with their Pulitzer Prize–winning biography of Jackson Pollock, have written another tour de force—an exquisitely detailed, compellingly readable portrait of Vincent van Gogh. Working with the full cooperation of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Naifeh and Smith have accessed a wealth of previously untapped materials to bring a crucial understanding to the larger-than-life mythology of this great artist: his early struggles to find his place in the world; his intense relationship with his brother Theo; and his move to Provence, where he painted some of the best-loved works in Western art. The authors also shed new light on many unexplored aspects of Van Gogh’s inner world: his erratic and tumultuous romantic life; his bouts of depression and mental illness; and the cloudy circumstances surrounding his death at the age of thirty-seven. Though countless books have been written about Van Gogh, no serious, ambitious examination of his life has been attempted in more than seventy years. Naifeh and Smith have re-created Van Gogh’s life with an astounding vividness and psychological acuity that bring a completely new and sympathetic understanding to this unique artistic genius. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • The Washington Post • The Wall Street Journal • San Francisco Chronicle • NPR • The Economist • Newsday • BookReporter “In their magisterial new biography, Van Gogh: The Life, Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith provide a guided tour through the personal world and work of that Dutch painter, shining a bright light on the evolution of his art. . . . What [the authors] capture so powerfully is Van Gogh’s extraordinary will to learn, to persevere against the odds.”—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times “Brilliant . . . Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith are the big-game hunters of modern art history. . . . [Van Gogh] rushes along on a tide of research. . . . At once a model of scholarship and an emotive, pacy chunk of hagiography.”—Martin Herbert, The Daily Telegraph (London)
