  • Van Goghby Jp. A. Calosse

    Parkstone International 2011; US$ 3.50

    Vincent van Gogh?s life and work are so intertwined that it is hardly possible to observe one without thinking of the other. Van Gogh has indeed become the incarnation of the suffering, misunderstood martyr of modern art, the emblem of the artist as an outsider. An article, published in 1890, gave details about van Gogh?s illness. The author of the... more...

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2012; US$ 45.00

    This book offers the first comprehensive examination of the psychodynamic theories of artistic creativity and the arts.

  • Remingtonby Frederic Remington

    Parkstone International 2015; US$ 9.95

    It is impossible to reflect upon Frederic Remington?s art without thinking of the merely human elements.

The Indian appealed to him not in any histrionic way, not as a figure stepped out from the pages... more...
