Overview

The compilation of Vincent Van Gogh's 333 finest color paintings in this online volume comes to you in a digitally restored state: the eye-popping brilliance and vitality are just as on the day Van Gogh finished them. Unless noted otherwise, all of them were originally oil paintings on canvas or wood (the few exceptions are watercolors). The arrangement is by genre (see the list below) and is chronological within each genre section.

Though the years of the early 1880s showed great promise and increasing technical mastery paired with a sharpening creative eye for Vincent Van Gogh's art career, the five-year span from 1886-1890 marked the high point (and end point), providing 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, social alienation and epilepsy tormented him to the time of his ambiguously explained death at the age of 37. But they may also have been catalysts for emotionality and vibrance in his art that reveal a turbulent search for grace.

Technical Note: All 333 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.

The masterpieces are organized into the following genres:

PORTRAITS
SELF-PORTRAITS
CHARACTER AND ACTION STUDIES
LABORERS
TOWNSCAPES: FROM A DISTANCE
TOWNSCAPES: FROM INSIDE THE TOWN
BUILDINGS: FROM AN EXTERIOR PERSPECTIVE
BUILDINGS: INTERIOR DESIGN
FLOWERS AND GARDENS: LIVING AND GROWING

    A Real Chopped-up Product

    With all the loops locking you to an image, and the stacked overlaps, very few of the masterpieces are even accessible. What you Can see is usually cropped off at the top.

    BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!
