  • If you want to see some of the paintings; visit my blog entry: bit/13nQ6LYThis is a very beautiful book that shows a particular aspect of this painter: the close up. Although for me it is difficult to imagine; the zoom did not exist in 1886 when he invented it. It is amazing that something I take for granted and do not give a second of thought was indeed non-existent in the world. Then; it took this genius to create it. This book covers the period between 1886 and 1890 when he was in Paris and h [...]


  • Loved, loved this exhibit in Philly in 2012 - however the book was a bit of a letdown. I guess maybe I prefer the catalogues that go through each piece of an exhibit so I can revisit each one and meditate upon it more and read a bit about that particular piece. This book was a bunch of essays about varied topics. Some not even related to the topic of the exhibit. Whatever.


  • I didn't end up reading all the essays but I enjoyed what I did read very much. Its given me inspiration for my own academic writing endeavours.


  • After seeing this exhibit in Philadelphia, I have a new and greater appreciation for Van Gogh. This book was written for the exhibit and gives greater details and depth to the man and his work.
