Vincent van Gogh

One day, a strange man arrives in Camille's town. It is the artist, Vincent van Gogh. His extraordinary paintings of the sunflowers and the "Starry Night" entrance the young boy. But not everyone appreciates the genius of Camille's "Sunflower Man," and Vincent is forced to leave the town. van Gogh and the Sunflowers is a classic tale about acceptance of those who are different.

Complete with reproductions of van Gogh's work, this is another inspirational story from Laurence Anholt's bestselling series, celebrating some of the world's greatest artists and the real children who knew them.

Synopsis:

Young Camille befriends a strange visitor to his small town, and one day he brings this man a gift of bright, beautiful sunflowers. The man is the artist Vincent van Gogh, and the sunflowers quickly become the subject of a magnificent painting. This is a title in Barron's Anholt's Artists Books for Children series, in which author and illustrator Laurence Anholt recalls memorable and sometimes amusing moments when the lives of the artists were touched by children. Anholt's fine illustrations appear on every page and include reproductions of works by the artists.
