Format: Paperback
The publishers at New Horizons have managed quite a feat. They have shrunk volumes of information and Van Gogh ouvres into a paperback book you can tuck into your bag or briefcase. It's small size is deceptive, as it is still a rich and lavish escape into the world of Van Gogh.
The book is chiefly biographical in nature, is in COLOR throughout, and includes a tremendous number of VV's works.
The illustrations are thoughtfully layed out and juxtapose nicely with the text as they follow VV's painting career and tortured life.
An added treat is the inclusion of a section that contains letters written to his brother Theo, several black and white photos of the actual places he lived and worked, as well as an extensive list of further reading.
I highly recommend all the titles in this series. I hope this makes parting with your $10 bucks a little easier! :^)

Format: Paperback
This is a very charming small book full of beautiful full color reproductions of Vincent's work. The organization is first rate -- there are references in this edition I never saw in others three times the price, such as a reproduction of the actual newspaper articles telling the story of Vincent's infamous ear slicing episode as well as the article announcing his suicide. Packed with relevant text ... I recommend this bargain priced treasure!

Format: Paperback
This is a spectacular acquisition depicting the works of Van Gogh-born in Groot Zundert, Netherlands on March 30, 1853. He came from humble beginnings. His father was a neighborhood preacher.

On January 11, 1862 at age 9, he drew a classic rendition of a

bridge. It was done so well that people couldn't fathom how a

9 year old could draw with such careful attention to details.

An old man with his head in hands was created in 1882.

The famous "Noon Rest" was drawn in 1890. Many famous works are

depicted in this volume. They are either penciled in black/white

or in full oil color.

The work is well worth the price for serious students of art,

world history, the Netherlands and the history of the 19th

century.

Format: Paperback
Beautiful illustrations and layout are the main features of this book. Van Gogh's biography makes up most of the text for this book. His paintings, sketches, and various photographs are inset within the text where appropiate; masterpieces such as 'Starry Night Over the Rhone' and 'Wheat Fields Under Clouded Skies' are given entire pages.
Some of Van Gogh's letters to his brother Theo are given a section of the appendix, along with a section detailing the man's legacy today. The book itself is smaller than normal - easy to pack away for trips. If your passion is Van Gogh, then Van Gogh: The Passionate Eye is for you.
