Overview

This volume displays Van Gogh paintings of buildings -- from farmhouses and cemetery towers to train stations, restaurants, cafés, hospitals, churches, dance halls and more -- in a digitally restored state: their eye-popping brilliance and vitality are just as on the day Vincent Van Gogh finished them. Unless otherwise noted, they were originally oil paintings on canvas. These images depict individual buildings, complementing "Van Gogh Townscapes" with its representations of conglomerate settlements and "Van Gogh Interior Design" with images of building interiors, both by the same publisher.

Vincent Van Gogh's short art career provided the world with unparalleled paintings from a troubled genius. It was to be an age of post-Impressionistic color, form and wonderment that the art world discovered only after the master's death. Bouts of anxiety, mental illness and epilepsy may have tormented him and brought about his suicide at the age of 37. But they may also have been catalysts for an emotionality and vibrance in his art that reveals a turbulent search for grace.

Technical Note: These images are in color -- they render beautifully in optimized gray-scale tones for black-and-white e-book readers, but exhibit even more stunningly in full color with color readers, such as the NOOK Color, and inside apps for color-enabled computers and portable or hand-held devices.

    Love VINCENT but disappointed

    I have bought 3 if these portable art books by Vincent Van Gogh to have his paintings easily accessible. Unfortunately only 2 or 3 painting are actually visible as you cannot scan through images without seeing the same picture over and over. Would love to actually have the pieces described be visible in the book.
