About this product
- DescriptionA beautiful and insightful examination of the parallels between two of the 19th century's most famous artists The affinities between Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) and Edvard Munch (1863-1944) have long been ted, yet a formal comparative study of the two artists has never been made. Kwn for emotionally charged paintings, deeply personal and invative styles, and dramatic lives of hardship, both Van Gogh and Munch fundamentally shaped the modern art movement in late-19th-century Europe. Munch:Van Gogh is the first publication to compare these two infamous and influential artists side by side, offering a groundbreaking critical examination of the parallels between their oeuvres and artistic ambitions. Gorgeously illustrated, the book offers a close consideration of the artists' uses of color, stylization, brushwork, and unconventional compositions in both paintings and drawings. The authors also draw connections between Van Gogh's and Munch's evocative and poignant correspondence with family and friends, allowing readers to understand more profoundly the essence of their art.
