Vincent van Gogh: Master of Post-Impressionist Painting


This absorbing biography conveys the same passion and energy with which van Gogh painted his masterworks. From his birth in Zundert, the Netherlands and his work in his uncle's art gallery, to his art studies in The Hague and his first important work The Potato Eaters, readers experience the challenges that van Gogh encountered in his life and work. Most importantly, they are immersed in his vibrant, dynamic, and boldly colored masterpieces that are roiling with movement and emotion. Vocabulary and fact boxes provide readers with additional opportunities to engage their minds and satisfy their curiosity.
