VAN GOGH: INTO THE UNDERGROWTH. Cornelia Homburg. Cincinnati Art Museum, 2016. Published in association with D Giles Limited, London. 160 pp. 29 x 24 cm. ISBN 9781907804847 In English.
Publisher's description: There is something intrinsically fresh, immediate and approachable about van Gogh's sous-bois paintings, which are some of his most famous and finest works, and which beautifully capture the subtle and transient effects of light on foliage. Van Gogh: Into the Undergrowth examines the way in which van Gogh was part of the wider sous-bois tradition in nineteenth-century French painting, and explores how he used painting as a metaphor for the dynamism, vitality, and ever-changing face of nature, as presented under the forest canopy.In addition to color plates of twenty-five artworks by van Gogh and other leading landscape painters such as Daubigny, Monet, and Gauguin, this volume presents extensive new research on van Gogh, nature, and sous-bois. There is a lead essay on van Gogh and nature by independent scholar Cornelia Homburg; Jenny Reynaerts looks at the sous-bois genre in the nineteenth century; whilst Simon Kelly examines van Gogh's relationship with the Barbizon and Impressionist schools.
