Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This book capitalizes on the reputation of Vincent Van Gogh by recounting his tortured existence during his peak productive years in Arles, the Saint Remy Asylum, and, finally, Auvers. Although beautifully produced with many color reproductions, fine design features, and a large trim size, the book is ultimately all show--one of many dozens placed on the market each year about this artist. The popular and concise narrative is not essential scholarship, making this a coffee-table accouterment more than an important addition to the literature. A better choice might be Carol Zemel's Vincent Van Gogh (Rizzoli, 1993). Recommended to libraries with limited funds.

Format: Hardcover
The author has compiled a ravishing collection of Van Gogh's works, many of which are in private collections and have never (or rarely) been reproduced before. Chronicling the last few years of the artist's life, this collection offers a much more revealing look at his major artistic output-- and provides a clearer view of his themes, techniques, style, and their development-- than any previous volume. In addition, the reproductions are spectacular. Great care has apparently been taken to print the plates with as much fidelity to the originals as possible in this medium. If the author's accompanying text is somewhat dry and pedestrian, the images more than make up for it. Vincent painted a clearer picture of his life than any biographer is likely to give us and, coupled with his own writings (they ARE still in print, aren't they?), this volume must stand as a major testament to the artist. What a tribute! Well worth the cover price.

Format: Hardcover
Bogomila Ovcharov-Welsh and Phillip Grushkin have created a masterpiece of their own.
I have read a myriad of art books, both "en français" and in English, of Van Gogh's works and never, never have I experienced the passion and vibrancy of his colors in a reproduction as I did while leafing through Welsh's latest book.
Only after my three hours with Van Gogh originals at the Los Angeles Museum of Art this past February and several visits to the Getty and their special exhibit of Van Gogh irises did I realize how washed out and virtually lifeless most printed reproductions are. Even slides I purchased at the Musée d'Orsay miss the mark.
Not so with Welsh's work! Once again, with this book, did I sense the passion (LUST FOR LIFE, revisted)and once again did I shed tears in marvelling at the sheer beauty and poignancy of Van Gogh paintings.
Thank you, Bobi, for your dedication to this masterwork.

This book reinspired my passion for Van Gogh's art. The book is a great example of his art work and his life. He lets you deep inside so you get a real look. And his works of art are expressed with vibrant color.
