Van Gogh Still Life [Illustrated] [NOOK Book]

Overview

Still-life painting has served artists for centuries as a sort of "practice" activity where the "subjects" are totally cooperative, just sitting or standing inanimately in view. Vincent Van Gogh was able to take the genre to new heights of expression, infusing life and vitality into shoes, smoked fish, fruits, vegetables, books, human skulls, mugs and dishes — in early years by unique juxtapositions of items, in later years by the technique of his swirling, pulsating background.

Overview

Still-life painting has served artists for centuries as a sort of "practice" activity where the "subjects" are totally cooperative, just sitting or standing inanimately in view. Vincent Van Gogh was able to take the genre to new heights of expression, infusing life and vitality into shoes, smoked fish, fruits, vegetables, books, human skulls, mugs and dishes — in early years by unique juxtapositions of items, in later years by the technique of his swirling, pulsating background. In some of his finest work, the objects are inseparably linked with the human elements that inspired them, edging over into literary and social criticism.

This volume displays 50 of Van Gogh's finest still-life paintings in a digitally restored state: their eye-popping brilliance and vitality are just as on the day Vincent Van Gogh finished them. All of them were originally oil paintings on canvas or wood. The arrangement is chronological.

Technical Note: All 50 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.

    Van Gogh

    This book is not what it says it is. There are 2 pictures in the book and they are small and not great. Very disappointed. But it was .99c what can I expect.

    A rip off

    Even at .99 cents this was a rip off. States there are 50 full color illustrations...there are only 4, then they repeat the same 2 over again.
