A Secret van Gogh. His Motif and Motives By Antonino Saggio
eBook (PDF): $4.50
This book investigates a complex layer of mysteries and clues concealed in van Gogh's paintings and biography. New points of view on the painter’s life are introduced and a foundation is laid... More > for the interpretation of the iconography within his work. The book deduces from the painter’s biography: a previously unexplored interpretation of the final argument with Gauguin; the critical role played by Rachel, la «jeune fille» d’Arles working in rue des Récollets, in the final years of the painter’s life; Theo’s role in quelling the scandal of the December 23rd ear amputation and Gauguin’s ensuing arrest; The author underscores his thesis though a series of details in van Gogh’s works, the painter’s own letters, and by re-visiting well known events in his life. This juxtaposing of biographical facts with the psychological origins of the works posits an exciting new thesis in "A Secret of Van Gogh: His Motif and Motives" that will be of great interest to a wide audience of readers.< Less

On August 27, 1914, in London, I made this note in a memorandum book: "Met Arthur Ransome at_____'s; discussed a book on the Russian's relation to the war in the light of psychological... More > background--folklore." The book was not written but the idea that instinctively came to him pervades his every utterance on things Russian. The versatile man who commands more than respect as the biographer of Poe and Wilde; as the (translator of and commentator on Remy de Gourmont; as a folklorist, has shown himself to be consecrated to the truth. The document that Mr. Ransome hurried out of Russia in the early days of the Soviet government (printed in the New Republic and then widely circulated as a pamphlet), was the first notable appeal from a non-Russian to the American people for fair play in a crisis understood then even less than now.< Less
