A study of the personal and professional history of van Gogh and Gauguin takes a close-up look at their brief collaboration in Arles in 1888 and discusses the role of each artist in promoting the other's search for a personal style that incorporated the latest artistic developments but remained true to each artist's vision. BOMC.

From Publishers Weekly:

To accompany the Art Institute of Chicago blockbuster van Gogh and Gauguin exhibit, here's a blockbuster book, with reproductions of such sensuous beauty that they are likely to convert even nonfans of the squabbling yet eternally linked pair. This book's subtitle is a translation of a phrase van Gogh used, more accurately rendered as "The Studio in Southern France," where van Gogh and Gauguin were in close contact, inspiring and antagonizing one another in a way that has fascinated generations of poets, playwrights, screenwriters and even art historians. The most famous van Gogh paintings, like Starry Night and Sunflowers, are put into context here, and there is room also for early, lesser-known works. Four major chapters "Origins," "Encounters," "South Versus North," "The Studio of the South" are followed by a chapter of letters exchanged by the two artists; a "coda" about Gauguin in the tropics, after van Gogh's famous ear-cutting incident broke up their partnership; and a technical appendix with results from lab investigations of canvas fibers and paint chemistry that help to date the works. In clear art historical prose, the painters' motivations are pointed out, such as van Gogh's portrait of Gauguin seen from behind: "In no other instance did Vincent decline to confront a sitter in this way." Two self-portraits, done simultaneously for a friend named Paul Laval, are cogently contrasted, with van Gogh's depiction of his own face showing "a scowl of concern and irritation, his green-eyed gaze skittish..." whereas Gauguin's view of himself shows "watchful, almost smug self-possession." This kind of lively character analysis, as well as art historical smarts, will make this a prestigious title for anyone even vaguely interested in modern French painting, but the 510 illustrations (over 300 in color) are the stars of the show here.

Book Description Thames & Hudson, United Kingdom, 2001. Cloth. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. First edition, simultaneously published in the U.K. and the U.S.A. Folio. Grey silk binding, 408 pp. Illustrated through in color. When Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin met in Paris in 1887, they were two of several artists seeking a way to move beyond Impressionism. They also found common ground in the conviction that progressive art should be created at a distance from urban decadence—which led Gauguin to Brittany and van Gogh to Arles in early 1888. Once established in Provence, van Gogh persuaded Gauguin to join him there in hope of founding a "Studio of the South." This book presents a day-by-day examination of the artists' activities in Arles between Gauguin's arrival on the 23rd of October, 1988, and his departure two months later, after van Gogh injured himself. Published on the occasion of a landmark exhibition organized by the Art Institute of Chicago and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, this lush volume includes 510 illustrations, with more than 300 of them in color. New in new dustjacket. Seller Inventory # 011104
