Book Description
The personal and professional history of van Gogh and Gauguin -- their rivalrous friendship and brief period of collaboration in Arles in 1888 -- constitutes one of the most dramatically revealing sagas in the history of modern art. In many ways, it is the quintessential story about the beginnings of modern avant-garde practice as it developed in the wake of the last Impressionist exhibition, held in 1886. Gauguin and van Gogh were, by circumstances of personality and history, ""isoles"": at once inherently self-involved and faced, in the absence of a single dominant ""school"", with a dizzying array of contemporary art-making. Brought together by circumstance, each artist played a vital role in the other`s search for a personal style that would relate to current developments yet be unique. Over the course of this century, van Gogh and Gauguin have received a prodigious amount of scholarly attention. Recent contributions to this literature -- including new biographies, studies of particular aspects of their art, and publication of their letters -- have expanded our knowledge significantly. But while references to their problematic interaction abound, sustained analysis of their mutual influence has yet to be the subject of a major study.
