Van Gogh in Provence

Modernizing Tradition

Published by Actes Sud
Edited with text by Sjraar van Heuglen. Foreword by Maja Hoffmann. Preface by Bice Curiger.

"An Old Woman of Arles" (1888) is reproduced from <I>Van Gogh in Provence</I>.

The surging brushstrokes and vibrant colors of Vincent van Gogh's Provence period

Although Vincent van Gogh is now considered one of the most original artists of his time, his art was deeply rooted in tradition. Modern subjects and styles began to enter Van Gogh’s oeuvre after he arrived in Paris in 1886, and his subsequent years in Provence found him experimenting and refining his personal style. But Van Gogh always remained true to the subject matter that had interested him in his early years.
Three genres dominate Van Gogh’s work from the beginning of his career to its end: the figure, the landscape and the still life. Van Gogh in Provence argues that Van Gogh’s achievements as a modernist are best understood in relation to these traditional loyalties. Using vibrant colors, surging brushstrokes and daring compositions to give established motifs new, expressive form, Van Gogh built a modern house on a traditional foundation.
Vincent van Gogh was born in the Netherlands in 1853. His painting career began when he was in his late twenties, influenced first by his work as a missionary in a mining region of Belgium, and later by his exposure to Impressionism while living in Paris. His bright, signature style emerged after relocating to the South of France, where he produced over 2,000 artworks in just over a decade. After bouts of mental illness, the artist took his life in 1890.

"An Old Woman of Arles" (1888) is reproduced from Van Gogh in Provence.

Van Gogh in Provence

Van Gogh in Provence"Pollard Willows at Sunset," painted in Arles in March, 1888, is reproduced from Van Gogh in Provence: Modernizing Tradition, the spectacular, highly gift-worthy new survey from Actes Sud. Vividly printed on heavy matte paper, the reproductions in this deluxe monograph show every hair of the painter's brush. "I follow no system of brushwork at all," Van Gogh wrote in Provence. "I hit the canvas with irregular strokes which I leave as they are, impastos, uncovered spots of canvas—corners here and there left inevitably unfinished—reworkings, roughnesses; well, I'm inclined to think that the result is sufficiently worrying and annoying not to please people with preconceived ideas about technique." continue to blog
