Vincent van Gogh

Heartfelt Lines

The relationship between drawing and painting in the work of Vincent van Gogh (1853 – 1890) is the subject of this impressive monograph.

Using 50 paintings and 120 drawings it is demonstrated for the first time how this masterful artist ultimately developed the interplay of dots, strokes and hatchings from the drawing into colour lines of various lengths and shapes in his painting.

With its excellently selected survey of works, this publication documents van Gogh’s achievements as a colourist and additionally shows that he very consciously worked at attaining calculated artistic effects.

Only in his last years of life, van Gogh believed he found pure artistic language in the form of ‘felt lines’ expressing ‘a personal volition’.
