Van Gogh and the Colors of the Night was written by Vincent van Gogh, Sjaar van Heugten, Joachim Pissaro, and Chris Stolwijk.
Throughout his career, Vincent van Gogh attempted to represent night through color and tonality. He followed the Impressionists by "translating" visual light effects with various color combinations, and produced fresh and original works of art. His artistic concerns were powerfully bound together in the nocturnal and twilight paintings and drawings. This book presents new insight on Van Gogh's depictions of night landscapes, interior scenes and the effects of both artificial and natural light on their surroundings.
Representing all periods of Van Gogh's career, this book has large reproductions of his works, details of iconic paintings and art by other artists that were important to the development of Van Gogh's body of work. Essays provide historical and personal contexts for better understanding the artist's motives and offer in-depth studies of the technical and stylistic aspects of Van Gogh's art.
