This delightfully illustrated book celebrates Vincent van Gogh’s love of nature and will enchant all gardeners and art lovers. The collection includes all his most characterful studies of trees, plants and flowers – a perfect gift!

Van Gogh’s landscapes and the paintings in which he conveys the wild beauty of Provence are well known, but he also found peace and inspiration in the more modest surroundings of gardens and parks, from gardens and allotments in Brabant to the cottage gardens of Montmartre and the blazing flower beds of the south of France.

Here are joyous paintings of plants in bloom and the intense studies of lilac, roses, irises and pine trees he produced in the asylum grounds at Saint-Rémy. All are tributes to Van Gogh’s originality and poetry.
