Overview

Many people know that Vincent van Gogh (1853–90) was a 19th-century Dutch artist, a leading light of the Post-Impressionist movement who painted Sunflowers and cut off his own ear. What, perhaps, they don't know is that he sold, in his lifetime, only one of the 2,100 artworks he painted; that his work Dr Paul Gachet sold for $152 million; that he wrote over 800 letters; and that he sent that famous ear wrapped in brown paper to a brothel. This book presents an instant impression of his life and work, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the artist behind the pictures.

Reviews

"The Biographic Series is an exciting new collection of biographies about some of the world's greatest thinkers, writers, artists and cultural innovators. Whilst each book could be read cover to cover, readers are more likely to randomly select pages, stopping and pausing to find out more about the subject. Whilst there is a risk that readers may miss the central narrative of the subject's life, the infographics are visually appealing and entertaining, perhaps reinvigorating an interest in the subject...The legacy of artists, such as Monet and Van Gogh are particularly well documented in their Biographic." - Armadillo magazine, https://www.armadillomagazine.co.uk, Summer 2017
