The first comprehensive publication to deal with Vincent van Gogh’s important influence on the art of German and Austrian Expressionists.
The paintings by Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890), one of the great painters of light and the fields of Provence, became the epitome of modern, international art during the period after his death up to the outbreak of World War One. In no other country was van Gogh so admired as he was in Germany: Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and other artists of Die Brücke (The Bridge) were fascinated by van Gogh’s technique, his powerful brushwork, and the strongly contrasting colors of his style, as well as dynamic aura of his glowing palette. Vasily Kandinsky and the artists of the Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) movement esteemed van Gogh for rejecting visible reality and penetrating the essence of nature. Austrian artists Egon Schiele and Oscar Kokoschka, on the other hand, were especially impressed by the soulful expression of van Gogh’s art and his insightful psychological portraits.Jill Lloyd, an expert on Expressionism, uses important paintings by van Gogh and an exquisite selection of works by Expressionist artists to describe the lasting influence of this Dutch painter on Expressionist art in Germany and Austria. (English edition ISBN 978-3-7757-1818-9) The author: Art historian Jill Lloyd has curated numerous museum exhibitions featuring twentieth-century art, and is the author of standard publications on German Expressionism. In 1991 she was awarded the National Art Book Prize for her publication German Expressionism, Primitivism and Modernity. Exhibition schedule: Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, November 24, 2006–March 4, 2007 · Neue Galerie, New York, March 23–July 2, 2007
