Nowadays, the works of Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) are among the best known and most valued in the world. In paintings such as Sunflowers, Starry Night and Self-Portrait with a Bandaged Ear, we recognize an artist with a unique talent for depicting textures and emotions, light and space.
During his lifetime, Van Gogh had to face not only the disinterest of his contemporaries, but also the devastating attacks of his mental illness. His bouts of depression and anxiety would eventually cost him his life when, in 1890, shortly after his 37th birthday, he committed suicide.admin
This exhaustive study of Vincent van Gogh offers a complete catalog of his 871 paintings accompanied by texts that retrace the life and work of one of the most outstanding figures in the history of art.
