Product Description

Product Description

- Digitally restored illustrations
- Translated captions
- Annotated

Vincent Van Gogh's short art career provided the world with unparalleled paintings from a troubled genius. It was to be an age of post-Impressionistic color, form and wonderment that the art world discovered only after the master's death. Bouts of anxiety, mental illness and epilepsy may have tormented him and brought about his suicide at the age of 37. But they may also have been catalysts for an emotionality and vibrance in his art that reveals a turbulent search for grace. His paintings of towns from a distance and his townscapes show an increasing use of vivid color from the earlier, more monochrome and cloudy Holland to the excitement of Paris and finally to the sun-splashed South of France.

This volume displays 49 Van Gogh townscapes in a digitally restored state: their eye-popping brilliance and vitality are just as on the day Vincent Van Gogh finished them. Unless otherwise noted, they were originally oil paintings on canvas. (These image of towns and cities represent conglomerate settlements and complement "Van Gogh Buildings" by the same publisher, which depicts individual buildings and interiors.)

Technical Note: All but one of these images are in color -- they render beautifully in optimized gray-scale tones for black-and-white e-book readers, but exhibit even more stunningly in full color with color readers and inside Kindle apps for color-enabled computers and portable or hand-held devices.

Another perfect little book for use with a Kindle Fire HD, a must if you have even a slight interest in Vincent's works. At 77pence you can't really go too far wrong can you.
