The Yellow House: Van Gogh, Gauguin, and Nine Turbulent Weeks in Provence Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

From October to December of 1888, Paul Gauguin shared a yellow house in the south of France with Vincent van Gogh. They were the odd couple of the art world — one calm, the other volatile — and the denouement of their living arrangement was explosive. Making use of new evidence and Van Goghand#8217;s voluminous correspondence, Martin Gayford describes not only how these two hallowed artists painted and exchanged ideas, but also the texture of their everyday lives. Gayford also makes a persuasive analysis of Van Goghand#8217;s mental illness — the probable bipolar affliction that led him to commit suicide at the age of thirty-seven. The Yellow House is a singular biographical work, as dramatic and vibrant as the work of these brilliant artists.

Synopsis:

This chronicle of the two months in 1888 when Paul Gauguin shared a house in France with Vincent Van Gogh describes not only how these two hallowed artists painted and exchanged ideas, but also the texture of their everyday lives. Illustrated.
