Why was Vincent so completely inspired by his own image? And what eventually led to his sad, solitary suicide at the age of thirty-seven? In this comprehensive study of Van Gogh's self-portraits, the artist answers for himself through his own letters and diaries and through the documentation provided by his haunting paintings.

Between 1885 and 1889, Vincent van Gogh created more than 40 self-portraits, all of which are included in this unique collection. Art historian Bernard Denvir provides brief descriptions and includes excerpts from van Gogh's personal diaries and correspondence. Also included are a detailed family tree, a biographical index, and a chronology of the artist's life. Paintings of van Gogh by Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin, Pissarro, and other contemporaries complement this 144-page volume.


What drove artist Van Gogh to produce his masterpieces, and what lead to his lonely life and eventual suicide? Denvir's title is written at a level young adults will appreciate; but the interest will reach into adult audiences with this fine, complete collection of the artist's self-portraits and accompanying reflections, provided in color and in chronological order. -- Midwest Book Review
