Van Gogh
Biography

Full Name: Vincent Willem Van Gogh
Born: 1853
Died: 1890


Born in Groot-Zundert, The Netherlands, Van Gogh spent his early life as an art dealer, teacher and preacher in England, Holland and Belgium. His period as an artist began in 1881 when he chose to study art in Brussels, starting with watercolours and moving quickly on to oils. The French countryside was a major influence on his life and his early work was dominated by sombre, earthy colours depicting peasant workers, the most famous of which is The Potato Eaters, 1885.
It was during Van Gogh's studies in Paris (1886-8) that he developed the individual style of brushwork and use of colour that made his name. In 1888 he moved to Arles where the Proven?al landscape provided his best-known subject matter. However, it also marked the start of his mental crisis following an argument with his contemporary Paul Gauguin. Van Gogh was committed to a mental asylum in 1889 where he continued to paint, but he committed suicide in 1890.

Simon Schama on Van Gogh

"Vincent's passionate belief was that people wouldn't just see his pictures, but would feel the rush of life in them; that by the force of his brush and dazzling colour they'd experience those fields, faces and flowers in ways that nothing more polite or literal could ever convey.
His art would reclaim what had once belonged to religion - consolation for our mortality through the relish of the gift of life. It wasn't the art crowd he was after; he wanted was to open the eyes and the hearts of everyone who saw his paintings. I feel he got what he wanted.

Vincent Van Gogh, Wheatfield with Crows, 1890 (Oil on canvas)

So what are we looking at with this painting? There’s suffocation, but elation too. The crows might be coming at us, but equally they might be flying away, demons gone as we immerse ourselves in the power of nature. It's a massive wall of writhing brilliant paint, in which the colour itself seems to tremble and pulse and sway."

传记
全名: 文森特·威廉·梵高
生于:1853
死于:1890

梵高出生在荷兰的赫仑桑得,早年在英国,荷兰和比利时当过艺术商人,教师和牧师。他的艺术家生涯始于1881年,那时他选择在布鲁塞尔(比利时首都)学画。开始他学的是水彩,而后很快转向油画。法国乡村对他的生活影响最大。他的早期作品笼罩着阴郁的土色,描绘下层农民和劳动者。这个时期他最著名的画作是作于1885年的《吃土豆的人》。

梵高以他对笔触和色彩的独特运用而闻名,这种个人风格形成于他在巴黎学画期间(1886-8)。1888年他移居阿尔勒。那里的普罗旺斯风景提供了他作品中最著名的题材,同时他的精神病也是从那里开始的 -- 在一次和同时代画家高更的争吵之后。1889年梵高住进精神病院,在那里他继续画画,但在1890年开枪自尽。


Simon Schama 对梵高的评论

“梵高坚信,人们不仅能欣赏他的画,也能感受到其中充沛的生命力。他笔下的劲道和缤纷夺目的色彩,带着观者体验画中的田野、面孔和花朵。这是其他纤细、婉转的作品所无法传达的。

他的艺术终将取代宗教的地位,透过对生命恩赐的玩味使人们得到慰籍。他不是要迎合大众,而是点醒、感化所有看到他作品的人。我想他的愿望实现了。

在这幅画中我们看到了什么?窒息,但同时也有喜悦。那群乌鸦可能是向着我们而来,但也可能是背我们而去。当我们沉浸在大自然的力量中时魔鬼便消失了。大自然在这里幻化成一道五彩斑斓的高墙,其中的色彩似乎在颤抖、脉动、摇曳。”
