Book Club Broadcast Recording Available | Van Gogh – the Life

Thanks to all of you who attended our book club meeting last night where we discussed Van Gogh | the Life by Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith. The recording is now available (YouTube video below).

If you didn’t get a chance to read this book with the book club, I highly recommend it. This is one of the  best-written and most  thoroughly researched books I have ever read. I felt as if I were living with the artist for the last several months as I have read the book. Though not an easy person to live with, my life is richer for knowing Van Gogh through this biography.

Interviews with the Authors

I  also encourage you to watch interviews with the authors of the book – their insight into the life of the artist and the story of their process for writing the book is fascinating.

Charlie Rose Interview: http://www.charlierose.com/watch/60024444 (You have to go about 21 minutes into the video to get to their interview – otherwise you’ll be watching coverage of the 2012 primaries . . . and who would want to do that?!)

Diane Rehm Interview: http://thedianerehmshow.org/shows/2011-10-24/steven-naifeh-van-gogh-life

60 Minutes Segments (2 Parts): http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7384904n (Part1) & http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7384908n (Part2) – I couldn’t get the video to work in Chrome, so if it’s not working for you – you may need to open it in a different player and click around on the video box and progress bar (great website CBS!)

  1. It took longer to read this book than any I can remember. it was painful to understand how Van Gogh’s mind created such misery when he could create such wonderful art. I actually like the Potato Eaters. I did not hear it mentioned in the program that Monet and Degas actually raved over Van Gogh’s work in the final show Theo put him in.
