Product description

From Booklist

In this intelligent and engrossing book, Gayford offers an unusually vivid retelling of the famous events of late 1888, when Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin shared a studio in a small town in southern France. Relying heavily on their voluminous correspondence (written mostly to Theo van Gogh, Vincent's brother and Gauguin's art dealer), Gayford follows their trajectory from harmony to discord and, finally, van Gogh's madness. The book reveals the complicated dynamics of the relationship: desperately lonely, van Gogh wanted Gauguin to remain in Arles as long as possible, yet his increasingly vehement arguing repelled his friend. And better than most others who have attempted it, Gayford illuminates how the two artists influenced each other's work. Van Gogh, for instance, might never have completed one of his masterpieces, his final version of The Sower, without the lessons provided by Gauguin's diagonal compositions and foregrounded figures. Gayford persuasively diagnoses van Gogh's illness (bipolar disorder) and even provides a plausible rationale for the notorious incident of the artist's lopping off of his own ear. Kevin Nance
