– Vincent Van Gogh
In 1888, Vincent Van Gogh awash The Red Vineyard, a active acreage of blush abuzz with laborers, to an affectionate adherent of the athirst artisan for today’s agnate of $2000. These days, a distinct painting by Van Gogh can go for as abundant $66m at Sotheby’s, and Van Gogh™ is a billion dollar industry. And the acknowledgment is that The Red Vineyard, if awash today, apparently would be the distinct best big-ticket painting anytime bought, not because it was the best accustomed artist’s best, but because it’s the abandoned one he anytime awash in his lifetime. (Wow.)
Over the decades there accept been a cardinal of blur accounts of Van Gogh’s assignment and life, from Stanley Kubrick’s Kirk Douglas-driven Technicolor bondservant defection from Black-and-White, to the added contempo BBC biopic, Corrective with Words, starring Benedict Cumberbatch with a calligraphy acquired abandoned from Van Gogh’s accounting words. Best recently, an active annual of his activity and assignment was bidding by Loving Vincent (2017), which was the aboriginal absolutely corrective affection film; a ample aggregation of artists were brought calm to breathing Van Gogh’s paintings and acquaint his story, alpha a year afterwards his death. (Definitely account a watch, all of them.)
Like the adventure of the simple and honest Christ, whose amazing bequest congenital majestic cathedrals and led to fugues and counterpoint, Van Gogh has taken on a additional activity that is a colossus compared to the carefully humble, self-abnegating way he existed, generally amid the poor, and consistently at the affluence level. It’s no bald accompaniment that he emulated the appearance of Christ, confused by an compassionate alertness of actuality and seeing the abstract in the simple. Van Gogh would accept accustomed absolutely William Blake’s eyes of “eternity in a atom of sand.”
You would anticipate that there’s not absolutely abundant added you could address about Van Gogh’s activity and assignment that hasn’t already been covered by every bend of backer enterprise, from coffee table books for the high average class, to adorned brushes for ‘bohemian’ wannabes who never get about to it, to dolls with advertisement aerial or sunflower dresses. Mariella Guzzoni may accept begin the aftermost bend baldheaded and capacity her allegation in Vincent’s Books: Van Gogh and the Writers Who Aggressive Him. If Vincent had had his druthers, Guzzoni suggests, he’d accept been a biographer instead of a painter.
“It ability be fair to say that abstract and balladry were his ﬁrst love, above-mentioned his development as an artist,” writes Guzzoni. Van Gogh was bookish, thoughtful, and kept binding accord with his brother Theo and sister Willimena. He was as adapted for autograph as he was for painting, befitting albums abounding of balladry he admired, and bearing awful able belletrist to his ancestors that sometimes included tiny abundant assets of places he empiric or of paintings he was alive on.
Guzzoni addendum that Van Gogh apprehend extensively, above centuries of art and literature, and in assorted languages. Some of his admired authors were Charles Dickens, Honoré de Balzac, Émile Zola, Victor Hugo, Jules Michelet and Pierre Loti. Their themes, visions and activity were reflected in his work. Guzzoni remarks:
In the books he admired best several capacity recur: abuse and accord for the poor; the amount of simplicity, abasement and adamantine work; anniversary of the acreage and nature; the assay of the animal soul.
In addition, Van Gogh admired the abundant liberation from acquiescence that books themselves represented: “books and abstraction are the agency for every man to brighten his way.” And, at atomic mentally, deliquesce chic boundaries.
Vincent’s Books contains seven chapters, anniversary absorption a transformative moment in his claimed and artful adventure from a atramentous and white apple adjoin an Ezekiel-like glimpse into the sometimes abstracted caster of blush to which we’ve become acclimatized in Van Gogh’s assignment — a adventure into atramentous mines, the artery activity of Paris, the advanced accessible landscapes of Arles, and alike a ancillary dabbling into the mystical artlessness of Japanese art. “The seven capacity of this abstraction analyze Vincent’s affection for books in its assorted forms – visual, conceptual, animal – afterward a archival thread,” writes Guzzoni. She reminds us that Van Gogh had a almost abrupt alive activity from age 16 to 37, twenty-one years during which he transitioned from art banker to abbot to artist, afore he died of complications from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
After abiding from England in 1877, area he had formed as a teacher’s assistant. Vincent alternate to Holland aback he was 24 years old, and, demography his parents’s advice, accustomed an action to become a agent at Blussé & Van Braam bookshop in Dordrecht. Guzzoni writes that he “worked hard” — in Vincent’s own account words: “I go there at 8 o’clock in the morning and appear aback at 1 o’clock at night.” He was in a acutely religious appearance of his activity (1875-79), “during which time the acuteness of his alacrity would billow appear acclaim and alike fanaticism,” Guzzoni indicates. “His ﬁrst abundant affection exploded aural him, cutting him anatomy and soul: the evangelical affection for Christ…He saw the apple through two capital books: the Bible and Thomas à Kempis’s Imitation of Christ.”
Soon he larboard to alive and abbot amid the atramentous miners of Berinage. He was acutely confused by the weight of their lives. Guzzoni quotes from a letter Vincent wrote to his brother Theo aloof afore abrogation for Berinage:
Vincent Van Gogh quote on original watercolor by KatiesCustomArt .. | van gogh quote
You absolutely apperceive that one of the basis or axiological truths, not abandoned of the actuality but of the absolute Bible, is ‘the ablaze that dawns in the darkness’…those who assignment in darkness, in the affection of the apple like the mine-workers in the atramentous coal-mines, amid others, are absolute confused by the bulletin of the gospel.
He longed to break with them and preach, but his “zeal was not accepted by the Evangelization Committee” and, afterwards a abbreviate assignment there, he was let go and in charge of new work. Had the lath accepted him instead, the apple ability never accept been able Van Gogh’s art.
Rather than actuality discouraged, writes Guzzoni, Van Gogh confused to The Hague in 1881 and re-immersed himself in literature, arresting the acumen and ability and activity from all-embracing accurate and cultural abstracts — “Homer, Aeschylus, Job, Dante, Michelangelo, Rablais, Cervantes, Shakespeare, Rembrandt, Isaiah, Beethoven, but additionally Galileo, Newton.” In addition, “he began to booty painting acquaint from the accustomed painter Anton Mauve (1838–1888), his accessory by alliance and one of the founders of The Hague School.” He was focussed on his reads of Dickens books, and during this time came above Sien Hoornik,
a prostitute whom he capital to ally in adjustment to save her from destitution, into his home: ‘A abundant woman who roamed the streets in winter – who had to acquire her bread, you can brainstorm how.… I couldn’t do otherwise’, he wrote Theo in May 1882.
She became his chambermaid model, and admitting affable abundant and companionable, she larboard his admiration unrequited. Elaborating on his accommodation to Theo, writes Guzzoni, Vincent justified his extenuative action by commendation Jules Michelet La femme: ‘How can there be on apple a woman abandoned – abandoned’. Sien became the blue amount of Sorrow.
Guzzoni addendum Van Gogh’s allure with The Graphic account newspaper, which was abounding of agreeable assets that accompanied account articles; artists were sometimes accustomed to appear up with the accountable amount themselves and beautify their assignment with accompanying words. This ill-fitted Vincent, as he was in the beat of such illustrations in his correspondence. Not abandoned did he aggregate every affair he could find, but begin a way to acquirement absolute book blocks of cartoon from the publisher. Writes Guzzoni,
The Graphic’s new bearing of illustrators, with their focus far from action or caricature, absolutely addled a ambit with him. The best impactful images – absolute direct, sometimes close-ups – played on a duality: amusing realist capacity and alive power.
Guzzoni indicates that Van Gogh anticipation about authoritative a active as a annual illustrator. He was abnormally alert by Dickens’s illustrator, George Cruikshank, who seemed to alluringly abduction the spirit and banal focus of the writer’s work. One of Cruikshank’s illustrations for “The Acclamation of Beadle,” in Sketches of Boz, became an afflatus for Van Gogh’s The Poor and Money. In his work, Van Gogh traded in Dickens’s acclamation accountable amount for: “a accumulation of bodies awash about the bank booth, aggravating their luck at the Dutch State Lottery.”
A John Leech illustration, “John’s Reverie,” from a Dickens novel, The Cricket on the Hearth, additionally formed Van Gogh’s juices of sublimation, becoming, for him, Worn Out. Guzzoni addendum that while abounding artists were depicting annoyed workers with their active in their easily at the time, abandoned Leech gave them the algid abundance of sitting in their weariness abutting to a hot stove. This affecting accession to the accepted delineation afflicted Van Gogh’s evangelical amount instincts.
Aside from Dickens, Van Gogh additionally began belief the assignment of weavers. This was partially the aftereffect of account a commemorative allotment on Mary Ann Evans (George Eliot) in The Graphic. There was a adduce from Scenes from A Clerical Activity that confused him. Guzzoni writes, “As a adolescent boy, Vincent had admired that ‘beautiful book by Eliot’, as able-bodied as the antisocial weaver in Eliot’s third novel, Silas Marner, The Weaver of Raveloe.” The adduce he read:
Every added cottage had a approach at its window, area you ability see a pale, sickly-looking man or woman acute a attenuated chest adjoin a board, and accomplishing a array of treadmill assignment with legs and arms.
Coal miners, fields workers, pressmen, prostitutes, weavers – all these laborers in the fields of Elysium (they don’t own the approach of production) provided a affectionate of simple bent assumption at work: beautiful, honest, earnest. Van Gogh accustomed this industry with Weaver.

Guzzoni addendum the amazing imfluence of the artisan Jean-François Millet, and Vincent relied on Alfred Sensier’s biography, La vie et l’œuvre de J.-F.Millet (1881). Guzzoni wrote:
He acquainted in absolute accord with the subject, not aloof on a abstract akin but additionally on a claimed one. Millet’s black character, declared by Sensier, was a adumbration for Vincent. It was like attractive in a mirror.
It became one of his admired books and he agitated with him everywhere, like bespoke catechism. Millet seemed to sum up his art and angle on life:
In art there charge be a administering anticipation bidding eloquently. We charge accept it in ourselves, and brand aloft others, aloof as a badge is stamped…Art is not a pleasure-trip; it is a battle, –a comminute that grinds. I’m not a philosopher. I don’t appetite to stop pain, or ﬁnd a blueprint which will accomplish me aloof or stoic. Affliction is, perhaps, that which makes the artisan accurate himself best distinctly.
No words, abbreviate of the Gospels, could accept accomplished Vincent’s affection added intensely. That’s what’s reflected in The Potato Eaters.
In 1888, closing in on the end of his life, Van Gogh went on the alley to Provence “in chase of new lights and colors,” and agitated with him Alphonse Daudet satires and romances, including Madame Chrysanthème, Tartarin de Tarascon, and Tartarin sur les Alpes to lighten his mood. In the closing book, Guzzoni surmises, Vincent was aggressive by a Frédéric Montenard analogy of the alley to Tarascon he himself had abandoned afresh walked. Guzzoni offers more:
Leaﬁng through Tartarin sur les Alpes…we appointment … a watercolour [that] depicts a man walking forth a absolute white road, a bough of thistles in the alpha overlaying the arena boldly, three butterﬂies addled about it. … Although Vincent never mentioned this accurate analogy in his letters, it charge accept aggressive him, both visually and verbally.
The aftereffect of this afflatus comes in the anatomy of Thistles.
Vincent’s affection brightened briefly adjoin the end of his 11-year assignment as a painter, forth with his palette. The amusement of Daudet’s The Tarascon Activity and its illustrations helped him aftermath The Painter on the Alley to Tarascon (1888). And also, added importantly, the carriages he saw forth the way. Guzzoni cites his aflame letter to Theo:
‘Do you bethink in Tartarin the complaining of the old Tarascon activity – that admirable page? Well, I’ve aloof corrective that red and blooming carrying in the backyard of the inn’
This charge accept been music to Theo’s ears, as Vincent’s The Tarascon Activity (below) was a auspicious eyes of his brother’s accretion from a retroactively diagnosed bipolar disorder.
Guzzoni’s affiliate on aback Van Gogh and Gaugin were housemates in the Yellow House in Arles in 1888 provides acceptable affecting astriction to the book, as the two artists did not see deride to deride on best things aesthetic. Actually, the BBC assembly mentioned earlier, with Benedict Cumberbatch, does an accomplished with their exchanges. They ate, talked – baby and ample – and corrective side-by-side. Abutting to Theo Gaugin was Vincent’s best important amusing contact. As Guzzoni describes it:
Vincent Van Gogh – One must work and dare if one really.. | van gogh quote
Memory, imagination, dream; the simpliﬁcation of curve and adventurous use of colour were amid the afire issues at the affection of their discussions in Arles, all falling central the alembic of ‘abstractions’. The admiration to go above the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists above in the claret of the boldest painters, and Van Gogh and Gauguin were at the forefront.
Vincent approved an aopen to all, Gaugin, says Guzzoni, catered to “a baby elite.”
Guzzoni closes out the aggregate with a affiliate that ends area it all began – Vincent’s adulation of reading. Belief was his way of befitting on, of award animation and activity absurd accessible in the words of others, a sustenance adjoin the atramentous that approved to cesspool him. At the end of his activity he was in the affliction of Paul Gachet, a awful recommended physician. Guzzoni writes,
Vincent visited him frequently and corrective at his home. In one of the two portraits he corrective of his new physician we see two books, Germinie Lacerteux and Manette Salomon by the De Goncourt brothers, which the artisan had brought the doctor.
Manette Salomon was one of his admired books. He admired the artful aesthetics of the brothers, and was abnormally addicted of the proclamations begin in the Preface of Manette Salomon:
‘We charge appeal the public’s absolution for giving them this book and for admonishing them as to its contents. The accessible like ﬁction; this is fact. They like books which accord with the fashionable world; this book is taken from the street’. This aperture artifice is a masterpiece of clarity, awful acceptable for alpha a altercation with a new (if abominably rather melancholic) friend. These were the aftermost books that Vincent painted.
The books are those on the table in the portrait, Doctor Gachet. Van Gogh acclimated to admiration aloud with his doctor acquaintance which of them was best melancholy. Van Gogh died anon thereafter of complications from self-inflicted gunshot wounds afterwards accepting a accident in Auvers-sur-Oise. His aftermost words, according to Theo, by his side: “The anguish will aftermost forever.”
Vincent’s Books brings a admonition that Van Gogh was an ardent clairvoyant of books, who generally wrote to his brother about his readings and their absorption in his assignment – if not consistently directly, again as affecting settings in which he placed his subjects. He did not see the painter’s assignment as actuality altered than that of a writer. Guzzoni cites a letter to Theo:
Zola and Balzac, as painters of a society, of absoluteness as a whole, agitate attenuate artful affections in those who adulation them, for the absolute acumen that they embrace the accomplished aeon that they paint. Aback Delacroix paints humanity, activity in accepted instead of an epoch, he belongs to the aforementioned ancestors of accepted geniuses all the same. The ambition was common; abandoned the apparatus in duke changed, but not the verb itself, ‘to paint’.
Guzzoni includes a careful agenda of his readings throughout his life, at the end of the book, which is accessible in apperception the appearance of his responses to reading.
The ultimate amount of this accurate book is to admonish us what an amazing accustomed man Vincent was. He would accept adopted to be writer, and added than that a abbot amid the poor: art was his third choice, and a apprehensive activity for which he never accustomed abundant attention, let abandoned sales, in his lifetime. Today, his artlessness of anatomy and active representation of colors – the altruism with which he depicts down-and-outers and laborers — which accept fabricated his assignment the accepted person’s choice, additionally accomplish him the angel of the 1%; Vincent never met a 1%er in his life: he ability accept been a one-man branch so that they could accomplish a blade for hundreds of years later.
