Product Description

Van Gogh and the Colors of the Night

By Joachim Pissarro, Chris Stolwijk, and Sjraar van Heugten, with essays by Geeta Bruin, Jennifer Field, and Maite van Dijk

Co-published by MoMA and the Van Gogh Museum in conjunction with the first exhibition to focus on Vincent van Gogh's depictions of nocturnal and twilight scenes, Van Gogh and the Colors of the Night examines the artist's night landscapes, interior scenes, and representations of the effects of both gaslight and natural light on their surroundings. It features over one hundred illustrations, including details of Van Gogh's iconic paintings and works by other artist important to the development of his style.

Essays by Joachim Pissarro, Adjunct Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at MoMA, Sjraar van Heugten, Head of Collections at the Van Gogh Museum, and Chris Stolwijk, Head of Research at the Van Gogh Museum, provide context for better understanding the artist's motives and offer in-depth studies of the technical and stylistic aspects of Van Gogh's work.
