Van Gogh and Impressionism
This book follows Van Gogh's discovery of and interaction with the impressionism of Monet, Renoir, Pissarro and Degas. It was the work of the impressionists, who sought to capture the transient effects of colour and light, that encouraged Vincent van Gogh to adopt the vibrant colour range and impasto brush strokes of his most celebrated works. Though Van Gogh assimilated the achievements of the impressionists, he always stayed true to his ideas about emotive colour that he had begun to explore in his early years in the Netherlands.
