Representing "that part of his work which the artist himself considered most important," this book serves as the exhibition catalog for the major retrospective held recently in the Netherlands and occupying two museums. Essays by distinguished Dutch art scholars portray a humane genius captivated by peasant life and incorporating the artistry of 17th-century Dutch masters, the Barbizon painter Millet, Impressionism, and the writings of Zola and Dickens to forge his own masterpieces. The analyses of the works, drawing materials, and techniques are fascinating. Yet ultimately, it is the hundreds of exquisite color reproductions that the reader will savor. Commemorating the centenary of van Gogh's death, two new biographies, Jan Hulsker's Vincent and Theo van Gogh and David Sweetman's Van Gogh (both LJ 7/90), will complement this magnificent slipcased set. Most libraries should purchase the catalog.
