INDIVIDUAL ARTISTS. What other artist created more striking works or left a more dramatic mark on the art world than Vincent van Gogh? His prolific final months on this earth -- times when he was seriously ill, fragile, suffering, and isolated -- were crammed with an urgency to create his artistic legacy, unmatched by any subsequent artist. This book celebrates the marvels of his pioneering vision during his years at Arles through his final days in Auvers. This spectacular text makes use of a unique combination of elements to reveal the life of Van Gogh as it was enhanced and transformed in his art. Real-life photos of the people and places he painted are grouped with sketches or final versions of the paintings. Details of paintings are enlarged, and most striking of all, excerpts from the artist's diaries and letters comment on his subjects and on his aims in particular paintings.
