The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam houses the greatest single collection of the master's work, much of which has traveled to America as part of the largest exhibition of Van Gogh work in a quarter of a century. Published in conjunction with the exhibition, this catalogue is a fascinating and wieldy distillation of the show thousands jammed the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., to see. It represents 70 paintings from all phases of the artist's prolific, albeit brief, career. With a concise but riveting biographical sketch by author Richard Kendall.

This is the catalog of the 1998-1999 exhibition of 70 paintings from the Van Gogh Museum, allowing lucky viewers in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles to see these paintings outside of Holland for the first time. Essays on the history of the Van Gogh Museum, Van Gogh as a painter, and Van Gogh's life accompany the reproductions. A checklist of the exhibition is included.

...Kendall's graceful essay walks the reader through van Gogh's surprisingly ordinary life as a little-known artist who ultimately made extraordinary paintings...
