About the Author
Top customer reviews
This is a marvelous graphic biography of Van Gogh by Barbara Stok, a Dutch artist/author. She describes her inspiration:
"I chose the last couple of years of his life, the period he lived in the south of France, because it’s an extremely interesting time. There was a lot going on: he made his most beautiful paintings, he dreamed about setting up an artists’ house, there was the tragic incident with his ear and, finally, he went to a mental institution. He had hopes and dreams and big disappointments, but in the end he found resignation and consolation in his work and in nature." A fascinating interview appears at ttp://www.selfmadehero.com/news/2014/03/new-release-vincent-by-barbara-stok/
The Met is selling "Vincent" with the excellent collection of Van Gogh letters -- Van Gogh’s Letters: The Mind of the Artist in Paintings, Drawings, and Words, 1875-1890 -- which Stok read in researching her drawings and her book.
The drawings have an attractive, colorful, child-like appeal, a sense of immediacy and innocence that drew me deeper and deeper into his story.
This was a very pleasant hour of great pleasure and learning a little bit more about a great artist.
Barbara Stok is, in her own right, an artist to follow.
