This engaging book is the first in-depth investigation of the influential role that music and sound played throughout Vincent van Gogh’s life.

Music represented to Van Gogh the ultimate form of artistic expression. And he believed that by emulating music painting could impart a lasting emotional impact on its viewers.

In Van Gogh and Music, Natascha Veldhorst shows the extent to which Van Gogh not only admired the ability of music but how he incorporated musical subject matter and techniques into his work.

“Through ten illustrated chapters, Natascha Veldhorst presents a compelling argument that music is inextricably linked to Van Gogh’s work.” -Claire Jackson, BBC Music Magazine
