Kahng, Eik. Through VINCENT's Eyes: VAN GOGH and His Sources. 320 pages, including 200 color plates. 4to, cloth. New Haven, Yale University Press,, 2022.
This look at Van Gogh's influences explores the artist's relationship to the Barbizon School painters Jean-François Millet and Georges Michel-Van Gogh's self-proclaimed mentors-as well as to Realists like Jean-François Raffaëlli and Léon Lhermitte. New scholarship offers insights into Van Gogh's emulation of Adolphe Monticelli, his absorption of the Hague School through Anton Mauve and Jozef Israëls, and his keen interest in the work of the Impressionists. This thoroughly illustrated volume also discusses Van Gogh's allegiance to the colorism of Eugène Delacroix, as well as his alliance with the Realist literature of Charles Dickens and George Eliot.
