Author: LEO JANSEN; HANS LUITJEN; NIENKE BAKKER; Title: Vincent Van Gogh, Painted with Words: The Letters to Emile Bernard
Description: New York - Amsterdam, Rizzoli. Van Gogh Museum & The Morgan Library. 2007, First Edition. (ISBN: 0847829936) Cloth (Hardback), 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Book, 383 PP. This fine, well edited and richly illustrated publication contains the illustrated letters between two great modern artists-Vincent van Gogh and Emile Bernard. The original letters were previously in private hands and have not been seen for approximately 70 years. Here they are published in association with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and an exhibit at The Morgan Library & Museum in New York. In addition to the letters, the book also includes paintings, photographs, and drawings by both artists, as well as works by artists of the period, such as Paul Gauguin and Jean-Francois Millet. These letters, written between 1887 and 1889, are among the most important and relevant sources of insight into van Gogh's life and art. They bridge the time when van Gogh was living and working in Paris, where he painted most of his self-portraits (mainly because he was unable to afford models), to the small town of Arles, in Provence. Here he adopted new types of compositions and developed new ideas about color-all of which he describes in detail in letters to his friend and fellow painter Bernard. Only a year later, in July 1890, van Gogh died, at the age of thirty-seven. With extensive notes and index. A virtually As New copy with fine Dw. As New/Very Good.
Keywords: 0847829936 Van Gogh. Van Gogh Letters. Emile Bernard.
