About this product
- DescriptionVincent van Gogh was one of the greatest artists of the nineteenth century, and his works are kwn to millions. Less familiar is the powerful religious dynamic that played a central role in his life and provided a pervasive motivational thrust that was reflected in some of his greatest artistic achievements. The various components of this religious dimension are explored and their dynamic underpinnings discussed. The manner in which these psychic forces came into play and found expression in his life and art is developed, including the almost mystical aspect of his most sublime efforts.
