Great, but really great, artists live for hundreds of years. Sometimes through their work, sometimes because of their reputation. More often because of a combination of the two. That is definitely the case as regards Vincent van Gogh.
This book presents an extensive choice of his works from among the Kröller-Müller collection. They are all there: The Potato Eaters, Terrace of a Café at Night, Pink Peach Trees, the Bridge at Arles and ‘La Berceuse’. Which makes this book a celebration of Vincent van Gogh – and also a source of encouragement for every artist who today is sitting alone slaving over his masterpiece. The ‘Van Gogh syndrome’ has given a stern warning to art watchers. Van Gogh’s work – all those sublime landscapes, still life studies, flowers and portraits – represent an overwhelming and eternal firework display in the heavens. Hans den Hartog Jager leads the reader in an irresistible way through the life of Vincent van Gogh.
