📒Van Gogh S Ear ✍ David Rodney Nash
📝Van Gogh s Ear Book Synopsis : From the mountains of Utah to the seaside underbelly of Venice, California come two brothers on a voyage of holy revenge and realization. Ross hunts the rapist of his one true love, Lizzy. His younger brother, Brentwood, is unknowingly along for the ride. Culminating with three murders committed on Christmas Eve, this is a dark, contemporary story of a young man who destroys what he loves most. Van Gogh s Ear is the soul-rending account of love between two brothers. It is the narrative of their last few months together in a world where love tears apart and the lessons of the mind are rarely those of the heart. David Nash writes with a blade. Van Gogh s Ear is the kind of novel which is instantly engrossing and disturbing, and it leaves us in awe. Ross is devil and angel in a dark, high octane cosmos, and I could not look away as he spun out his revenge. This is fierce and fine writing, and Mr. Nash shows us again the potency of fiction. Ron Carlson, author of The Signal What a dark, flame-lit, searing cauldron of love and desire David Nash has illuminated here. Van Gogh s Ear astounds in its emotional ferocity, its wide-eyed look at the nature of torment, the emotional hell we each create for ourselves and those we love: and always, at hand, the possibility for redemption. Love, that which would save us all, each to each. This is biblical literature at its most contemporary: Venice, California; sand and the board-walk and beach; the dark side of the music scene and those who so populate written in a prose, line by line, that aches to be received, its cadences melodically fit and thundering within the dark well of these lives where the heart so insistently drums. Only David Nash could write this novel. Like a friend, a chance intersection in the dark night of a soul, this book will change your life. Leonard Cohen writes, Forget your perfect offering / There is a crack, a crack in everything / That's how the light gets in. Van Gogh s Ear is that light. T. M. McNally, author of Low Flying Aircraft
📒Van Gogh In Popular Culture ✍ Lynnette Porter
📝Van Gogh in Popular Culture Book Synopsis : Vincent van Gogh continues to fascinate more than a century after his death in 1890. Yet how much of what is commonly known about this world-renowned artist is accurate? Though he left thousands of works and a trove of letters, the definitive Van Gogh remains elusive. Was he a madman who painted his greatest pieces in a passionate fury or a lifelong student of art, literature and science who carefully planned each composition? Was he a loner dedicated only to his craft or an active collaborator with his contemporaries? Why is he best known for self-mutilation and "The Starry Night"? This book has biographers, scriptwriters, lyricists, actors, museum curators and tour guides, among others, presenting diverse interpretations of his life and work, creating a mythic persona that may, in fact, help us in the search for the real Van Gogh.

Along the way, Rinzler weaves in Darwin’s theories of evolution and shares insights on what the human body may be like millennia from now.

📒The Glory Of Van Gogh ✍ Nathalie Heinich
📝The Glory of Van Gogh Book Synopsis : The image of the great artist as a suffering visionary is a recent invention, observes sociologist Nathalie Heinich--an invention rooted in the "canonization" of Vincent van Gogh as a cultural hero for the twentieth century. Heinich explores how and why the impoverished and mentally tormented van Gogh came to be glorified shortly after his suicide at the age of 37. Did the secular art world need a rebel-saint of its own? In considering this possibility, the author explores the history of efforts to celebrate van Gogh, whether in biographies or on T-shirts, showing how the details of his life have been constructed according to the pattern of a Christian saint's rise to recognition. These biographical details circulated first as anecdotes, then as historical truths, and finally became legendary motifs defining individual greatness. At the time of van Gogh's death, early modernists hailed the work of this self-taught painter as that of a reforming prophet. Public interest stirred when the unique and tragic aspects of the artist's personal life came to light. In these stories, the figure of Van Gogh oscillated between godlike asceticism (he lived on very little, did not get married, did not eat much, and devoted his life to his work) and demonic frenzy (he drank, he went to brothels, and offered a piece of his own flesh, his severed ear, to a prostitute). His legend became one of victim and sacrificer, of an accursed artist who gave the world great paintings but paid the heavy price of society's ignorance. Heinich organizes her book around the stages that characterize the life of a saint-deviation, renewal, reconciliation, and pilgrimage, the latter culminating in visits to van Gogh's burial site and the competition to buy his paintings or "relics." Heinich explores the economics of the art market and the themes that make up the van Gogh myth, such as the personalization of artistic grandeur, the celebration of the interiority of the creator, and the glorification of abnormality. By examining the mythology that helps drive artistic investment, she forces us to reconsider the nature of admiration and particularly the notion that obscurity during an artist's lifetime is a guarantee of true genius.

📒Van Gogh Arles Murder ✍ Maurice Beale
📝Van Gogh Arles Murder Book Synopsis : Beginning with his arrival in Arles in March 1888, a combination of factual and fictitious events relating to Vincent Van Gogh are revealed while the Dutchman goes about creating timeless works of art. A number of drawings and paintings of previously unknown locals are finally afforded names and backgrounds. Prominent amongst these is a portrait of a young girl to whom the artist is especially attracted. When she is found murdered, suspicion falls on Van Gogh. Harassed by both a tireless police inspector and a majority of the citizens of Arles, the painter descends into the madness and despair, culminating in his slicing off part of an ear while remaining sufficiently lucid to identify - and paint - the man he suspects of the crime. Circumstances and characters pertaining to the murder define aspects of Van Goghs personality, as well as portraying a way of life in nineteenth century France remarkably similar to present day problems in the USA.
