TESTIMONIALS

Dutch Post-Impressionist artist Vincent Van Gogh(1853-1890) is considered to be one of the best known and mostinfluential painters in twentieth- and twenty-first century art. His art mirrored his troubled soul, revealing a deeper perspective in theimages he transformed on canvas. He was a difficult person, a sensitivesoul, misunderstood by family and acquaintances, misunderstood byhimself as well. Much has been written about the man, his art and theinsanity that drove him eventually to his death. He lived in an era when madness and insanity was the condition applied to all manner ofillnesses not understood by the medical profession of the time,including epilepsy, which is what medical professionals now believe wasVan Gogh's affliction.

Art historian Liesbeth Heenk provides readers and art enthusiasts with a new look at this compelling and emotionally driven artist. Her book,The 1-Hour Van Gogh Book: Complete Van Gogh Biography For Beginners,outlines this artist's troubled life, discussing in some detail hisartistic output, his drawings and paintings. The book is concise andwell presented in a manner that will appeal to both art professionals as well as art enthusiasts. She traces the artist's life, his journeythrough his art, his struggles with his mental issues, and hisunexplained death, believed at the time to have been a suicide. With afew illustrations of the artist's works, the book is a quick studyguide, written in a fluid style that makes it interesting to read, evenby those not so learned in the world of art history. A great addition to the study of a fascinating artist. Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite

It is a well written and accessible book, brief and to the point.
We truly recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about Vincent'slife, his work and legacy." - Josien and Jantine van Gogh,Theo van Gogh's great-grandchildren.

Highly Recommended! I love Van Gogh and this a very nice and readable book about his lifeand how to take a better look at his paintings. I am not an expert butthis book gives me more joy in looking at Van Gogh's paintings. It onlycost me 1,5 hour to read this book; very worthwile! - Erwin
 
"This publication is for people of all ages. For peoplewho want to read something easy, but interesting about Van Gogh. No heavystuff. Smoothly and enthralled, I went through it.
Years ago, I visited a restaurant in Arles. In an adjacent room,walls were filled with reproductions by Van Gogh. That was the only Van Gogh'museum' in France. But Vincent is seen as a Frenchman over there. That's howthings go..." - Antoine d'Hollosy

Well worth a read, even if you can't get to Amsterdam!
I cannot in any way claim to be an "arty" person but this book makeseven me want to see these paintings, when I'm next over the water inAmsterdam. In fact, I may just hop on the ferry just to go to the VanGogh Museum (I didn't visit it last trip!)...Thanks Liesbeth for allowing me to view Van Gogh in a new light!- Philip (UK)

A little gem! Great and concise overview of how van Gogh's life influenced hisdrawings and paintings. Fluently written by an obviously expert arthistorian but very accessible for non-experts, partly thanks to theavoidance of jargon, partly thanks to the author's personalobservations.- Emma (UK)

From the Author

I sincerely hope you will enjoy this book. It is completely different from what I usually write, but I immensely enjoyed it! Many more are to follow in this series 'Secrets of Van Gogh'. Do tell me what you think!
