About this item

There is something intrinsically fresh, immediate and approachable about van Gogh'ssous-bois paintings, which are some of his most famous and finest works, and which beautifully capture the subtle and transient effects of light on foliage.Van Gogh: Into the Undergrowth examines the way in which van Gogh was part of the widersous-bois tradition in nineteenth-century French painting, and explores how he used painting as a metaphor for the dynamism, vitality, and ever-changing face of nature, as presented under the forest canopy.

In addition to color plates of twenty-five artworks by van Gogh and other leading landscape painters such as Daubigny, Monet, and Gauguin, this volume presents extensive new research on van Gogh, nature, andsous-bois. There is a lead essay on van Gogh and nature by independent scholar Cornelia Homburg; Jenny Reynaerts looks at thesous-bois genre in the nineteenth century; whilst Simon Kelly examines van Gogh's relationship with the Barbizon and Impressionist schools. Laura Prins writes specifically on Cincinnati Art Museum's own late van Gogh painting,Undergrowth with Two Figures, which has recently been restored.
