Van Gogh : up close by Vincent van Gogh( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Through a glass, darkly" is the biblical phrase that Vincent van Gogh borrowed in a letter to his mother, Anna Cornelia, when reflecting on his clouded perception of those closest to him. Painting, on the other hand, was a more certain venture. Van Gogh's relationship to the object is tirelessly recounted in a number of paintings and drawings that privilege an intimacy between viewer and viewed. The close examination of objects in nature was one first explored in his youth. These early efforts and their subsequent development are here considered through the spirit of adventure suggested by Lewis Carroll's imaginative novels Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871), focusing on the artist's childhood imagination and passion for nature, flowers and insects and the element of wonder and spontaneity in his work. The "enlarged" and detailed viewing and distortions in scale that Alice experiences in both novels provides a way in which to approach Van Gogh's imagery that reflects the "close-up" view. Considered in four parts, with titles drawn from Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass, this thematic overview centers around the concept of the close-up and considers the impact of various developments in the fields of art, literature, science and technology, religion and popular culture on the artist's way of seeing and perceiving. Highlighted here are some key subjects relating to Van Gogh's engagement with objects and the natural world, such as the experience of the artist's youth, his childhood studies, the importance of flowers, plants, trees and insects, literature as a source of inspiration in his work, and the evolution of the detail in his paintings"--

Neo-Impressionism and the dream of realities : painting, poetry, music by Cornelia Homburg( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue explores the creative exchange between Neo-Impressionist painters and Symbolist writers and composers in the late 1880s and early 1890s. Symbolism, with its emphasis on subjectivity, dream worlds, and spirituality, has often been considered at odds with Neo-Impressionism's approach to portraying colour and light. This book repositions the relationship between these movements and looks at how Neo-Impressionist artists such as Maximilien Luce, Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, and Henry van de Velde created evocative landscape and figural scenes by depicting emptiness, contemplative moods, Arcadia, and other themes. Beautifully illustrated with 130 colour images, this book reveals the vibrancy and depth of the Neo-Impressionist movement in Paris and Brussels in the late 19th century.

Vincent Van Gogh : timeless country, modern city by Cornelia Homburg( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A volume which explores Van Gogh's oeuvre through two fundamental aspects of his artistic identity: his love for the countryside and his attachment to the city. Admired for his light-filled landscapes as much as for his impassioned portraits, Vincent van Gogh was an impetuous painter with a cavalier disregard for convention when it suited him. At the same time he was a sophisticated thinker, fluent in several languages, and trained as an art dealer. Though often plagued by several doubts about his work, he was immensely ambitious and ultimately had a clear sense of his oeuvre as a whole and the place it was to take in the history of art. Such apparently contradictory positions define much of Van Gogh's life and artistic output. They are also at the basis of this volume, which explores Van Gogh's oeuvre through two fundamental aspects of his artistic identity: his love for the countryside as a stable, never-changing environment and his attachment to the city as the center of fast-moving, modern life. The catalog features works by Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cezanne, Paul Gauguin, Jean-Francois Millet, Georges Seurat, Camille Pissarro, Charles Francois Daubigny, Anton Mauve; prints after Daubigny, Daumier, Millet, that Van Gogh himself collected and copied as well as etchings and aquatints by Pissarro and Cezanne; and five letters written by Van Gogh to friends, colleagues, and art critics. It accompanies an exhibition at Complesso Monumentale del Vittoriano that begins on February 20, 2011"--Publisher's website
