    Book details

Vincent van Gogh (18531890) felt a profound empathy with the natural environment, and considered the spiritual essence of trees to be comparable with that of human figures. Vincents Trees traces Van Goghs development as a painter of trees in the natural landscapefrom his home province of North Brabant, through Paris to Provence. Ralph Skeas elegant prose is accompanied by Van Goghs vibrant illustrations of trees, which range from pencil and ink sketches to watercolours and oil. Stylistic experiments encompassing Pointillism and compositions inspired by Japanese prints give way to the expressive, painterly depictions of his later work. The book also includes quotes from Van Goghs letters, which convey the depth of his feeling for the natural landscape, and the force with which it affected him.

Review Text

  • By Mr B on 12 December 2014

    This book is a delight, and the editor and publisher have done a very good job that the in producing something that would make a lovely introductory gift about Van Gogh. I assume companion volume 'Vincents flowers' will be up to the same standard. One reviewer of the kindle version complained that there were not many drawings: to focus on the drawings would be one larger book. This is almost Christmas tree size. The colour reproductions are of a very high standard, and the running narrative, which includes little quotes from the letters, is clear and lucid, and entirely appropriate to the production. It also provides a sense of Vincent's spirituality without going over the top, and lets the paintings speak for themselves. I have now ordered an edited collection of the letters. Lovely work from T & H.
