Published by Van Gogh Foundation / Actes Sud.
Edited with text by Sjraar Van Heugten.

Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) discovered Eugene Delacroix's theories of color in Nuenen, in the Brabant, where he worked from 1883 to 1885. His work began to truly evolve in Paris, where he continued to study the work of Delacroix and the Impressionists. This publication provides a historical overview of van Gogh's development as a colorist and his influences, including his brief friendship with Paul Gauguin.

Vincent van Gogh: Between Earth and HeavenVincent van Gogh: Between Earth and Heaven

The Landscapes

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Carel Blotkamp, Gottfried Boehm, Walker Feilchenfeldt, Bernhard Mendes Bürgi.

Vincent van Gogh was an artist wholly saturated in the colors and contours of the landscapes in which he lived and painted. More than Manet or Gauguin, nature itself was his muse and teacher: "it is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves, for reality is more important than the feeling for pictures," he once avowed. Between Earth and Heaven is the first book to provide a comprehensive survey of van Gogh's work as a landscape painter, identifying the stylistic transitions that were specific to this aspect of his work. It shows how the earthy tones of his early Dutch phase were gradually replaced by a lighter style following his relocation to Paris, and how, in the south of France, the artist discovered the intense, brilliant colors and vital expression that have made his paintings so fascinating to this day. Essays by renowned art historians and specialists explore this facet of van Gogh's oeuvre, examining both the artist's blockbuster landscape works and lesser-known paintings.
Although he witnessed little success during his lifetime, today Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) is rated as one of the greatest Dutch painters in history. He produced the majority of his work--some 900 paintings and 1,100 drawings--during a brief span of ten years, before he succumbed to mental illness and committed suicide at the age of 37. A seminal figure in the Post-Impressionist movement and an early pioneer of Expressionism, van Gogh is today one of the world's most famous artists.

Van Gogh and the Colors of the NightVan Gogh and the Colors of the Night

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Text by Sjraar van Heugten, Joachim Pissarro, Chris Stolwijk.

Throughout his career, Vincent van Gogh attempted the paradoxical task of representing night through color and tonality. His procedure followed the trend set by the Impressionists of "translating" visual light effects with various color combinations, yet this goal was grafted onto his desire to interweave the visual and the metaphorical in order to produce fresh and original works of art. These different artistic concerns found themselves powerfully bound together in Van Gogh's nocturnal and twilight paintings and drawings. This illuminating volume, published to accompany the first exhibition to focus on this aspect of Van Gogh's career, presents new insight on Van Gogh's depictions of night landscapes, interior scenes and the effects of both artificial and natural light on their surroundings. Representing all periods of the artist's career, this volume features more than 100 images of superlative quality, including large reproductions of works by Van Gogh, details of iconic paintings and images of works by other artists that were important to the development of Van Gogh's oeuvre. Essays by the exhibition organizers provide historical and personal contexts for better understanding the artist's motives and offer in-depth studies of the technical and stylistic aspects of Van Gogh's work.
Vincent van Gogh was born in 1853 in The Netherlands. His career as an artist lasted only 10 years, but he produced almost 2,000 paintings and works on paper during this brief period, many of them described or sketched in his extensive correspondence with his brother Theo. Van Gogh is most celebrated for his bold use of color and expressive painting technique. He spent his last years in the south of France, where he painted many of his most famous works. He died in Auvers-sur-Oise, just north of Paris, on July 29, 1890.

Vincent van Gogh: The Starry NightVincent van Gogh: The Starry Night

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Text by Richard Thomson.

Instantly recognizable as one of the most iconic images of modern culture, Vincent van Gogh's "Starry Night" draws thousands of visitors every day at The Museum of Modern Art. Yet few are familiar with the story behind this unlikely masterpiece, envisioned and executed by Van Gogh during his stay at a mental hospital in Saint-Rémy. "The Starry Night" is no ordinary landscape painting, with its surging forces, resonant chromatics and mysterious shapes that reflect Van Gogh's unique state of mind at the time. In this informative volume--the latest in a series on favorite artists and important works in MoMA's collection--distinguished art historian Richard Thomson provides an overview of the painting within the context of its creation, bringing together Van Gogh's correspondence regarding the painting and the Parisian art scene of his time with an in-depth exploration of his technique and style. Highlighting significant details not easily visible at first glance, and illustrated with dozens of comparable works, Vincent van Gogh: The Starry Night is an indispensable guide to one of the most famous paintings of the nineteenth century.

Van Gogh and ExpressionsimVan Gogh and Expressionsim

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Patrick Bridgewater, Stefan Koldehoff, Jill Lloyd, Michael Peppiatt, Olaf Peters, Chris Stolwijk.

From the time of Vincent van Gogh's death in 1890 until the outbreak of World War I, Van Gogh's work came to be seen as the epitome of internationally groundbreaking art--particularly in Germany, where artists like Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and others of Die Brücke (The Bridge) group were fascinated by his technique, his powerful brushwork, his strongly contrasting colors and glowing palette. Vassily Kandinsky and the artists of Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) movement esteemed van Gogh for rejecting visible reality and penetrating the essence of nature. Austrian artists Egon Schiele and Oscar Kokoschka, on the other hand, were impressed by his soulful expression and insightful psychological portraits. The scholar and curator, Jill Lloyd, who is profoundly knowledgeable in the field of Expressionism, here places an exquisite selection of works by Expressionist artists in the context of van Gogh's most important paintings, documenting the lasting influence of this nineteenth-century Dutch painter on Expressionist art in Germany and Austria.

Van Gogh: FieldsVan Gogh: Fields

The Poppyfield and the Artist's Protest

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Edited by Wulf Herzogenrath and Dorothee Hansen. Essay by Roland Dorn.

Vincent van Gogh arrived in Saint-Rªmy-de-Provence in 1889 to be voluntarily treated for psychiatric illness. Poppyfield was one of the first pictures that the artist painted that year of the countryside surrounding the asylum, and it continues the leitmotif of fields which runs throughout his oeuvre. Van Gogh's mind was rooted in the cycles of nature, from the mythical sower to the flowering corn to the autumnal reaper. What The Poppyfield and the Artist's Protest also reveals is the artistic possibilities hidden in his conception of the landscape, in the perspectival effect of depth and the accentuation of the canvas's surface. More than 50 paintings and drawings by the Dutch artist are represented here, all of them a tribute to van Gogh's idiosyncratic interpretation of the landscape. Additionally, this publication discusses the particular situation of Poppyfield, which was acquired by the Bremen Kunsthalle in 1911 amid the protests of German artists who were against the arrival of French modernism in German museums. Bremen curator Gustav Pauli, with the support of artists like Max Lieberman and Wassily Kandinsky, defended the purchase.
