Van Gogh and Britain
'Beautifully produced, Van Gogh and Britain adds greatly to our appreciation of the artist who created such universally beloved paintings, over 800, in just 10 years.' - New York Journal of Books
A lavishly illustrated paperback, accompanying The EY Exhibition: Van Gogh and Britain, which explores the impact of British culture on Vincent Van Gogh and his lasting legacy on British art.
Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890) is considered one of the most influential post-impressionist artists in the history of Western art. During his short yet prolific career he routinely chose to paint from nature, developing a highly personal use of colour and brushwork directly expressing an emotional response to his subject and his inner world.
The book explores the wider significance of the British artists that affected him and which he in turn inspired, tracing the story from the artist's obscure years in England in the 1870s through to his iconic status from the 1950s onward.
