About this title


Enveloped in a sense of surrealism and showing a complete disregard for conventional rules of composition, this novel portrays the tragedy of the artist through Lucien—a painter who is fascinated with the works of van Gogh. Expressing a pre-existentialist idea of the human condition, humanity appears lost between two infinite extremes in a universe with no rhyme or reason, condemned to an absurd life of angst and loneliness. Lucien is doomed to suffer in his eternal search for an ideal he will never reach. Rompiendo con toda preocupación realista y manifestando una indiferencia total por las reglas convencionales de composición, esta novela expone la tragedia del artista a través de Lucien—un pintor facinado con las obras de van Gogh. Expresando una concepción preexistencialista de la condición humana, la humanidad aparece perdida entre dos infinitos en un universo sin pauta ni razón y condenada a una vida absurda de angustia y soledad. Lucien se ve condenado a sufrir una búsqueda eterna de un ideal al que nunca podrá alcanzar.
