Van Gogh Trees [Illustrated] [NOOK Book]

Overview

Vincent Van Gogh often depicted individual trees, orchards, arboretums, parks, forests and groves through the skilled prism of his own unique vision, from rectory gardens and wooded areas of his native Holland to the parks and gardens of Paris and finally to the various fruit trees, cypresses, willows, pine trees, poplars and olive groves of Southern France where he spent his last years.

Overview

Vincent Van Gogh often depicted individual trees, orchards, arboretums, parks, forests and groves through the skilled prism of his own unique vision, from rectory gardens and wooded areas of his native Holland to the parks and gardens of Paris and finally to the various fruit trees, cypresses, willows, pine trees, poplars and olive groves of Southern France where he spent his last years. In some of his finest work, the branches and leaves of cypress and other trees take on the swirling effect mirrored in the trademark Van Gogh sky. 1888 and 1889 were peak years for his tree paintings.

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.

This volume displays 50 examples of Van Gogh's finest tree art 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 or wood. The arrangement is chronological within each category.

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 and inside Kindle apps for color-enabled computers and portable or hand-held devices.

    Very disappointed!

    With 4 stars from Customer Review section, I had hopes that the complaints voiced by others about e-books in this series had been fixed. I WAS WRONG!!!! Only 4 pics out of the promised 50 came up. Because of the 4 stars (maybe a star per pic?), I paid the $0.99 for this e-book & saved others in this series to my Wishlist. Needless to say they are getting deleted frrom the list. A lesson learned...
