Overview

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. "Starry Night," for instance, is one of Van Gogh's best-known masterpieces, perhaps for the unique texture through which we view the heavens.

This volume displays Van Gogh nightscapes 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.

Technical Note: The great majority of 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 NOOK Color -- and inside compatible apps for color-enabled computers and portable or hand-held devices.
