Van Gogh at work
This extraordinary book explores the workmanship behind Van Gogh's artistry. The reader follows Van Gogh's quest to perfect his skills and the way he adopted various drawing and painting techniques; acquired information about materials; learned about the physical characteristics of canvases, paint, paper, chalk, and other materials; how he approached working on paper and canvas and which factors influenced his working practice. Showing his work alongside that of other artists demonstrates the degree to which he followed examples set by his contemporaries.
Van Gogh's working methods are explored along with his most famous works, addressing such topics as the use of a perspective frame, colour theory, the influence of contemporaries and the famous repetitions of a theme as in the Sunflowers and the Bedroom series.
English edition, hardback, 304 pages. With 400 beautiful colour illustrations.
