In a yellow house in the South of France, two artistic giants-to-be joined forces for very different reasons.
In Paul Gauguin, Vincent Van Gogh saw a complementary, inspiring talent, a person blessed with "poetry... [and] gentle, heart-rending qualities." In Van Gogh, Gauguin saw a chance at success in the art world through the connection with Vincent's brother Theo, a noted dealer. In October of 1888, the two giants of the Post-Impressionist world joined forces in a tiny yellow house in the South of France. The partnership exposed the many misconceptions each had about the other, proved tempestuous from the very beginning, lasted just nine weeks, led to one of the most infamous incidents in the history of art, and helped two immense talents take giant strides toward realizing their potential.
Filled with interviews with leading art historians and images of the dramatic works that emerged from the "Studio of the South" in Arles, this unique Biography® is as much a profile of a moment as of the two men who were at its epicenter, a portrait of a tense friendship and barely sublimated rivalry that produced some of the most famous paintings of all time and helped shape the future of the art world.
