Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) en Edvard Munch (1863-1944) zijn beroemd om hun emotioneel beladen schilderijen en tekeningen, hun persoonlijke en vernieuwende stijl, en hun doornige levenspad. Zij streefden beiden naar een moderne uitdrukkingswijze in de kunsten, door existentiële en universele thema's in een expressieve picturale taal te behandelen. Ondanks treffende overeenkomsten in hun oeuvre en artistieke streven, en niettegenstaande dat zij dikwijls in een adem worden genoemd, werden zij nog nooit in een tentoonstelling naast elkaar gesteld. Het Van Gogh Museum en het Munchmuseet bundelden dan ook hun krachten om deze unieke tentoonstelling en catalogus te verwezenlijken.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0300211570, Hardcover)

The affinities between Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890) and Edvard Munch (1863–1944) have long been noted, yet a formal comparative study of the two artists has never been made. Known for emotionally charged paintings, deeply personal and innovative styles, and dramatic lives of hardship, both Van Gogh and Munch fundamentally shaped the modern art movement in late-19th-century Europe. Munch:Van Gogh is the first publication to compare these two infamous and influential artists side by side, offering a groundbreaking critical examination of the parallels between their oeuvres and artistic ambitions. Gorgeously illustrated, the book offers a close consideration of the artists’ uses of color, stylization, brushwork, and unconventional compositions in both paintings and drawings. The authors also draw connections between Van Gogh’s and Munch’s evocative and poignant correspondence with family and friends, allowing readers to understand more profoundly the essence of their art.
