The well-written 1-Hour Van Gogh Book is the ultimate brief preparation or follow-up for museumgoers interested in Vincent van Gogh. The renowned and enthusiastic Van Gogh specialist Liesbeth Heenk helps the reader discover step-by-step how Van Gogh made his masterpieces, such as the Potato Eaters, the Sunflowers and Starry Night.
She also gives a very interesting insight into this extraordinary artist's life and personality; where he lived, how he lived and how his illness may have affected his work. Heenk's engaging style and the absence of art historical jargon make this book accessible to a wide audience.
It is her firm conviction that museum visitors should focus on the actual art rather than on explanatory wall texts and labels. After having spent a useful hour reading this booklet, the reader will, indeed, feel confident and fully equipped to understand and - more important - appreciate Van Gogh's paintings.
