About Van Gogh Taschen Hardcover Book – The Complete Paintings – Bibliotheca Universalis
Vincent van Gogh’s story is one of the most ironic in art history. Today, Van Gogh is celebrated as the world over as one of the most important painters of all time, recognized with sell-out shows, feted museums, and record prices of tens of millions of dollars at auction. As he was painting the canvases that would subsequently become these sell-out modern masterpieces, van Gogh was battling the disinterest of his contemporary audience and mental illness. In addition to this, Van Gogh dealt with episodes of depression and paralyzing anxiety which would eventually claim his life in 1890, when he committed suicide shortly after his 37th birthday. Furthermore, This Van Gogh Taschen Hardcover Book, co-authored by Rainer Metzger and Ingo F. Walther, pairs a detailed monograph on his life and art with a complete catalog of his 871 paintings.
