The final years of Van Gogh's life, from 1888 to 1890, were his most prolific. During his 15-month stay in Arles, he created almost 200 canvases. This was followed by 12 months at Saint-Rmy, where he created 142 paintings, and his final 70 days in Auvers, where the last 70 canvases were created. This book celebrates these last 30 months of Van Gogh's life, when he poured out his passion into portraits, landscapes, and still lifes.
Reproductions of his paintings, photographs of the people and places he painted, Van Gogh's own descriptions of his work, and a detailed text by Bogomila Welsh-Ovcharov combine to create a powerful study of these intense, creative months.

Bogomila Welsh-Ovcharov is a noted Van Gogh scholar who teaches at the University of Toronto, Canada. Her books include: Van Gogh in Perspective (1974, Prentice Hall); Vincent Van Gogh: The Birth of Cloisonism (1981, The Art Gallery of Ontario/Rijksmuseum Vincent Van Gogh); and Van Gogh à Paris (1988, Musée d’Orsay, Paris); as well as numerous articles. Welsh-Ovcharov is regularly consulted by Christie’s and private Van Gogh collectors alike.From Library Journal:
This book capitalizes on the reputation of Vincent Van Gogh by recounting his tortured existence during his peak productive years in Arles, the Saint Remy Asylum, and, finally, Auvers. Although beautifully produced with many color reproductions, fine design features, and a large trim size, the book is ultimately all show--one of many dozens placed on the market each year about this artist. The popular and concise narrative is not essential scholarship, making this a coffee-table accouterment more than an important addition to the literature. A better choice might be Carol Zemel's Vincent Van Gogh (Rizzoli, 1993). Recommended to libraries with limited funds.
