Van Gogh's Imaginary Museum: Exploring the Artist's Inner WorldISBN: 0810945762;
Book DescriptionThis lush volume accompanies an important exhibition opening in February 2003 at the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of Vincent van Gogh. It brings together the paintings that inspired him--by such masters as Rembrandt and Rubens, Corot and Courbet, Monet and Gauguin--with dozens of his own works, creating an "imaginary museum" that reveals a fascinating dialogue between the artist and his art-historical predecessors. The book features 170 reproductions from the "imaginary museum" itself, most accompanied by fascinating related excerpts from the artist's correspondence. Van Gogh is one of the most popular of artists. This book offers a new look at his work--from the artist's own point of view.
