VAN GOGH IN ENGLAND: PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN. Martin Bailey and Debora Silverman. Barbican Art Gallery, London, 1992. Distributed by Lund Humphries Publishers Ltd, London. 152 pp. with 179 ills. (36 col.). 28 x 24 cm. LC 92-238974 ISBN 0853316171 In English.
Exploring in detail the impact of the young Van Gogh's sojourn in England from 1873 to 1876 on his personal and artistic development, this catalogue features 14 of the artist's sketches from the period along with 19 later paintings, drawings and lithographs linked to his British experiences. Also presented are reproduction prints handled by the London art dealer for whom Van Gogh worked, paintings by Tissot, Millais, Legros and other artists he probably saw on display at the Royal Academy, and engravings by British journal illustrators whose social realist images he greatly admired. Individual commentaries on the exhibited works and the transcript of a sermon Van Gogh delivered in 1876 supplement eight essays describing the painter's exposure to Victorian art, literature and society and presenting evidence of its influence on his later life and work.
