Continuously in print for more than 20 years, Abrams' Masters of Art series has always been known for its exceptional quality and value. Now these classic volumes devoted to the lives and works of the world's great painters have been newly redesigned and released in paperback for the first time. The Comprehensive text, written by distinguished art historians, provides an incisive and informative portrait of Van Gogh and perceptive commentaries on their works and achievements. The book features 40 full-page, full-colour plates accompanied by commentary on the facing pate. Plus, numerous black-and-white illustrations supplement the text.
