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.

Review:

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.

Review:

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
