Through Vincent's Eyes: Van Gogh and His Sources (Hardback)

£45.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Vincent van Gogh's (1853-1890) idiosyncratic style grew out of a deep admiration for and connection to the 19th-century art world. This fresh look at Van Gogh's influences explores the artist's relationship to the Barbizon School painters Jean-Francois Millet and Georges Michel-Van Gogh's self-proclaimed mentors-as well as to Realists like Jean-Francois Raffaelli and Leon Lhermitte. New scholarship offers insights into Van Gogh's emulation of Adolphe Monticelli, his absorption of the Hague School through Anton Mauve and Jozef Israels, and his keen interest in the work of the Impressionists. This copiously illustrated volume also discusses Van Gogh's allegiance to the colorism of Eugene Delacroix, as well as his alliance with the Realist literature of Charles Dickens and George Eliot.



Although Van Gogh has often been portrayed as an insular and tortured savant, Through Vincent's Eyes provides a fascinating deep dive into the artist's sources of inspiration that reveals his expansive interest in the artistic culture of his time.

Eik Kahng is deputy director and chief curator at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.
