Hockney-Van Gogh. The Joy of Nature - Van Gogh Museum shopSjraar van Heugten. The changing seasons captivated Vincent van Gogh —90 , who saw in their unending cycle the majesty of nature and the existence of a higher force. Van Gogh often linked the seasons to rural life and labor as men and women worked the land throughout the year. From his depictions of peasants and sowers to winter gardens, riverbanks, orchards, and harvests, he painted scenes that richly evoke the sensory pleasures and deprivations particular to each season. This stunning book brings to life the locales that defined his tumultuous career, from Arles, where he experienced his most crucial period of creativity, to Auvers-sur-Oise, where he committed suicide. Van Gogh and the Seasons is an essential resource for anyone interested in van Gogh, from general admirers to scholars and curators. Read more.
