This groundbreaking study of paintings and drawings of cypress trees by Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) is the first to focus on the artist's unique treatment of this subject. Challenging prevailing views about the artist's preoccupation with the flamelike trees that played such an important role in the works made in the South of France near the end of his life, Susan Alyson Stein retraces Van Gogh's progressive exploration of the subject-from ink on paper to such iconic canvases as Starry Night (1889) and Wheat Field with Cypresses (1889).
