VAN GOGH REPETITIONS


VAN GOGH REPETITIONS

E. RATHBONE W. ROBINSON ET AL    Book Number: 80944    Product format: Hardback

Popular perceptions of Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) frequently envision him working before nature in an intense frenzy, yet his method was often controlled and deliberate. This is the first book to focus on the artist's 'repetitions', a term he used to describe his process of producing more than one version of a composition. Van Gogh ultimately developed a conceptual framework that distinguished his repetitions from copies, études, tableaux and decorations, balancing modernist aspirations toward originality. The artist's practice of producing repetitions of his paintings was far more extensive and vital to his creative process than is commonly recognised. The book is groundbreaking and beautifully illustrated and contains a series of essays considering the many unresolved issues and controversies surrounding the repetitions including their origins, development and meaning in Van Gogh's art. Technical and analytical examinations provide new insights, and comparisons are made throughout of the same images in different media or by use of contemporary photographs. Includes colour plates and woodcuts, a Yale University Press glamorous publication, 188pp, 9½" x 10¼".
