From The Art Institue of Chicago comes this wonderful book of van Gogh's artwork. Familiar and beloved the world over, this work is imbued with emotion, whether the subject is landscape, portraiture, still life, or genre scenes. The Art Institute's permanent collection includes sixteen examples by van Gogh - oils on canvas and works on paper that embrace every aspect of his oeuvre. Among them are some of the Dutch artist's most important and signal paintings: A self-portrait from his second stay in Paris, Madame Roulin Rocking the Cradle (La Berceuse) , and The Bedroom. This book represents all sixteen works in full color and features many illuminating comparative illustrations that reveal his influences and concerns. Belinda Thomsons' essay on the artist's life details the context of spirituality, multiple literary and visual associations, and sense of time and place that inform and enrich the compelling art of Vincent van Gogh. In publisher's shrinkwrap, the book is 8 3/4" x 9 3/4" wide. A beautiful gift. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
