In his new book Vincent’s Gardens, author Ralph Skea surveys the gardens that were most revered by Van Gogh—from the parsonage gardens in the Netherlands to the romance of Parisian city parks; from the blazing flower beds of Provence to the asylum gardens that provided Van Gogh with peace and seclusion during his final months. The book is structured geographically, and gives readers a refreshing glimpse of the verdant and vibrant gardens loved by Van Gogh.
Whether joyous paintings of plants in bloom or the intensely beautiful studies of lilacs, roses, irises, and pine trees that he produced in the asylum at Saint-Rémy, all the oils and sketches included in the book are monuments to Van Gogh’s originality and poetic sensibility.
