Fifty exemplary works spanning the Post-Impressionist's career, from one of the world's foremost Van Gogh collections

In this volume, 50 masterpieces by Vincent van Gogh (1853-90) from the prestigious Kr ller-M ller Museum in Otterlo--which houses one of the greatest Van Gogh collections--document the Dutch painter's entire career, on the eve of the 170th anniversary of his birth.
Through reproductions of the 50 paintings and drawings alongside biographical accounts, the volume reconstructs Van Gogh's trajectory along a chronological thread of the periods and places where the painter lived: from his early life in the Netherlands to his years in Paris, Arles, S. Remy and finally Auvers Sur-Oise; from his early passionate and dark landscapes to his depictions of manual laborers such as sowers, potato pickers, weavers, woodcutters, miners and domestic workers.
Between 1908 and 1929, Anton and Helene Kr ller-M ller, the founders of the Kr ller-M ller Museum, purchased 91 paintings and more than 180 works on paper by the painter, amassing the world's second-largest Van Gogh collection. This volume constitutes both an overview of Van Gogh's career and an account of their passion for the artist.
