Van Gogh's Table at the Auberge Ravoux: Recipes From the Artist's Last Home and Paintings of Cafe Life

Overview

At the Auberge Ravoux, in a tiny artists' village twenty miles from Paris, Postimpressionist painter Vincent van Gogh found a measure of peace in an otherwise ill-starred life. In what would be his last home, he enjoyed the camaraderie of fellow artists and an unparalleled burst of creativity.

Overview

At the Auberge Ravoux, in a tiny artists' village twenty miles from Paris, Postimpressionist painter Vincent van Gogh found a measure of peace in an otherwise ill-starred life. In what would be his last home, he enjoyed the camaraderie of fellow artists and an unparalleled burst of creativity.

The auberge still operates today as the Maison de Van Gogh. Little has changed since Van Gogh set down his bags more than a century ago, and visitors to its cafT are treated to the same regional cuisine that he dined upon.

Here is an intimate view into Van Gogh's world, as stirring as sharing poulet and pommes sautTes with the artist himself. Written by one of America's foremost culinary historians, with Dr. Fred Leeman, the former chief curator of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, and including an introduction by the auberge's proprietor, this unique cookbook/art book explores life in the artists' cafT, with traditional recipes ranging from the hearty to the refined. Letters, engravings, postcards, and a selection of Van Gogh's paintings transport the reader to the turn of the century.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This unique book shines a light on the Auberge Ravoux, the cafe and inn where Van Gogh spent his final months. This fascinating book provides a history of the auberge, complete with archival photographs, and introduces readers to Van Gogh's work through beautiful reproductions of his café paintings. Recipes from the auberge recreate the rich, vibrant atmosphere that led Van Gogh to paint some of his greatest works.

Publishers Weekly
Alexandra Leaf''s Van Gogh's Table exhibits more European charm in describing the Auberge Ravoux, where the great one-eared painter spent his final years. Fifty recipes for bistro classics such as Rosemary Roast Chicken with Pan-Fried Potatoes, and Garlic and Warm Tarte Tatin with Cr?me Fra?che, accompany generously illustrated essays that name the fellow patrons depicted in van Gogh's art and his struggle with suicidal impulses. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
Van Gogh spent the last few months of his life in Auvers-sur-Oise, a small village outside Paris that had attracted other artists before him. He had a small room at the Auberge Ravoux, and Dr. Gachet, recommended by Pisarro, lived nearby and befriended him. In 1987, a Belgian businessman living in Paris, intrigued by the history of the Auberge, which was still operating as a cafe, bought and restored it; today, the Maison van Gogh attracts more than 100,000 visitors a year. The first section of this volume, written by Leeman, former chief curator of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, provides biographical and artistic context for the artist's cafe paintings, many of which are reproduced here. The second half, written by culinary historian Leaf, is subtitled "Dining at Van Gogh's Table" and includes 40 recipes from the cafe's current chef in three chapters: "Cuisine Populaire," traditional home-style dishes; "Cuisine du Terroir," regional specialties; and "Cuisine Bourgeoise," which features menus that might have been served at Dr. Gachet's house. This charming, somewhat wistful book is recommended for larger art history and cookery collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
