Book Description

27 Oct 2012
Bold strokes of genius. This is the amazing work of a tormented soul. Vincent van Gogh's story is one of the most ironic in art history. He lived an unhappy and difficult life during which his work received almost no appreciation - finally killing himself by a bullet to the chest, so great was his despair - and is now widely considered one of the most important painters of all time, his works fetching record prices of tens of millions of dollars at auction. This comprehensive study of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) represents a rarity in art history: a detailed monograph on his life and art combined with a complete catalogue of his 871 paintings. These volumes also reproduce most of van Gogh's paintings in color.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looked for a Van Gogh art collection-found it here! 25 Dec 2012
By Becky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've been looking for a collection of Van Gogh's works for a while on here. It was pretty difficult considering there were a ton of different editions by Taschen(publisher), with mixed reviews depending on the edition(some had bad color, others were good, etc). This book is the newest edition, which is part of the Taschen 25. I have not read through this book entirely as it is a rather large book, but I have skimmed and flipped over every page, and found that the color appears vibrant, and the text gives a good look into the life and history of Van Gogh not only as an Artist, but as a person who never seemed to quite meet success until the end of his life.

As written on the Taschen website, this book is, "a detailed monograph on his life and art combined with a complete catalogue of his 871 paintings". This holds true, although note that not all paintings are full page sized. Many are small, but that is necessary considering how much there is. I would like to mention that I found some ink smudging on a page, but I'm pretty sure that's from the sheer size of the book, and it only appears to have affected some text which is still legible. I would also like to note that the way the book is written, you will continually have to go back when the text refers to a painting; this is not an issue to me but I know some people may be bothered by that. Ex; you're reading text on page 30 that refers to paintings on page 16(an example but not one right from the book).

I'd also like to mention that some paintings in this book are in black and white, but that is because some have been lost, destroyed, or are in private collections and are inaccessible with current color photography.

Overall, a very good book of good value. This is for someone who wants to learn about Van Gogh and see all of the works he has done. Please do remember this book is exceptionally large and heavy because of the number of paintings Van Gogh did during his lifetime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Van Gogh 12 Aug 2013
By S. D. Poehler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Excellent resource for artists and Van Gogh enthusiasts. The book is a great compilation of Van Gogh's early work and also throughout his career. I highly recommend this book for the emergent artist to the most expert level to study, and broaden perspectives of the post-modern impressionist movement.

Very good book! Many paintings in good quality and story of master's life. Don't think you could find better for this price.
5.0 out of 5 stars As a Hobby 9 April 2014

This book is easy-to-read, easy-to-understand. None of the ambiguous superficial commentaries about paintings. Only wish the paintings could be bigger on page. Definitely worth the money.
