Van&nbspGogh is a vivid portrait of the great impressionist painter that traces his life from the Netherlands, where he was born into a family of art dealers, through his years in England, the Hague, and&nbspParis, to his final home in Arles, where he discovered the luminous style of his late paintings before his suicide at the age of thirty-seven.Van&nbspGogh struggled to find his way as an artist. Well into his mid-twenties he had achieved virtually nothing aside from a few charcoal drawings of coal miners. Afflicted by mental illness and a mercurial temper, he was institutionalized several times toward the end of his life. Julian Bell conveys this tragic story with great compassion, depicting van Gogh in all his anguished vigor, a genius for whom the greatest challenge was to stay alive until he had completed his most fully realized and magnificent works.
JULIAN BELL has a BA in English from Oxford. He is the author of What Is Painting? Representation and Modern Art   and Mirror of the World: A New History of Art.
