The Van Gogh DVD offers unprecedented insight into the life and work of one of the greatest artists of our time, and is a gorgeously rendered work of art in its own right.
Vincent Van Gogh remains the ultimate example of the tortured artistic genius. His whole life was a struggle against poverty, loneliness and mental disorder.
In a feverish spell of painting prior to his death, Vincent Van Gogh proved himself a great artist.
The hundreds of canvases that he painted in the South of France are now recognized as masterpieces of the Post-Impressionist age. His use of thick, swirling color was a conscious attempt to express his own tortured state of mind through his work. In his landscapes, still-lifes and portraits, he succeeded. Though he sold just one painting in his lifetime, works such as Sunflowers now sell for tens of millions of dollars. This DVD includes all new location footage, studies of the great works, plus commentary and analyses from leading authorities, art historians, and scholars.
