The complete paintings of Vincent van GoghToday, the works of Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890) are among the most well known and celebrated in the world. In paintings such as Sunflowers, The Starry Night, and Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear, we recognize an artist uniquely dexterous in the representation of texture and mood, light and place.
Yet in his lifetime, van Gogh battled not only the disinterest of his contemporary audience but also devastating bouts of mental illness. His episodes of depression and anxiety would eventually claim his life, when, in 1890, he committed suicide shortly after his 37th birthday.
This comprehensive study of Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890) offers a complete catalogue of his 871 paintings, alongside writings and essays, charting the life and work which continues to tower over art to this day.
“I think my favourite TASCHEN book is still the complete paintings of van Gogh which I always thought was an absolute bargain at $ 50.”
