A fully illustrated account of Van Gogh’s time at Saint-Remy’s asylum, Starry Night displays the series of masterpieces Van Gogh continued to produce despite struggles through ill health and the challenges of life in the asylum. Cypresses, wheat fields, olive groves and sunsets discover a world painted through the eyes of the famous artist. Through letters to his brother, Theo, that leave out the details of the asylum of Saint-Paul-de-Mausole this book gives an impression of daily life behind these encaging walls. Leading Van Gogh specialist, Martin Bailey, has worked to provide you with a glance at the artist through fresh eyes, with newly discovered material.
