The Yellow House: Van Gogh, Gauguin, and Nine Turbulent Weeks in Arles

The Yellow House: Van Gogh, Gauguin, and Nine Turbulent Weeks in Arles - Martin Gayford Outstanding biography of Van Gogh and Gauguin, focused on their nine weeks as housemates in the Provencal town of Arles. Some reviewers have complained about the author's "tangents," but I saw these as providing valuable background to occurrence during the target period.Both Gauguin and Van Gogh were volatile and creative folk, and it appears that their manic cycles fed off of one another in less than positive ways.The book is well-researched, using many contemporary sources (including Van Gogh's own letters), and interesting. Art history students are sure to enjoy this.
