More than a catalog. More than thumbnail prints. You can savor full, luxurious reproductions on 8-by-10 inch pages (20.32 x 25.40 cm) Each of Vincent van Gogh's 500 finest color paintings jumps out at you on the oversized page. Due to careful digital restoration, the eye-popping brilliance and vitality are just as vivid for you as on the day Van Gogh finished his masterpieces. For Vincent van Gogh, the five-year span from 1886-1890 marked the high point (and end point), providing unparalleled paintings from a troubled genius. It was to be an age of post-Impressionistic color, form and wonderment that the art world discovered only after the master's death. Bouts of anxiety, mental illness and epilepsy may have tormented him and brought about his suicide at the age of 37. But they may also have been catalysts for emotionality and vibrance in his art that reveal a turbulent search for grace.The arrangement is by genre (see the list below) and is chronological within each genre section. There are a few duplicates, that is, some paintings from one genre are also shown within the scope of another genre in order to emphasize their "dual nature." Those instances afford you, the viewer, with a fresh perspective on the composition.The masterpieces are organized into the following genres: PORTRAITSSELF-PORTRAITSCHARACTER AND ACTION STUDIESLABORERSTOWNSCAPES: FROM A DISTANCETOWNSCAPES: FROM INSIDE THE TOWNBUILDINGS: FROM AN EXTERIOR PERSPECTIVEBUILDINGS: INTERIOR DESIGN FLOWERS AND GARDENSFLORAL ARRANGEMENTSBIRDSANIMALSSTILL LIFETREESLANDSCAPESSEASCAPESRIVERS, CANALS AND BRIDGESSKYSCAPESSUNRISE, SUNSETMOONLIGHTSTARRY NIGHTS.
