Focusing on Vincent van Gogh's career from his arrival in Paris in 1886 until his death in July 1890, this gorgeously illustrated book illuminates his distinctive approach to landscape painting by also examining his portraiture. Presenting more than 200 color reproductions, art historian Cornelia Homburg considers a hundred key paintings—including rarely seen works like Quinces, A Pair of Boots, Giant Peacock Moth, Rain, Wild Roses and Beetle, Green Wheat Field with Cypress, and the nearly abstract Undergrowth—to reveal how Van Gogh experimented with unusual visual angles and the decorative use of color, cropping, and the flattening of his compositions.
