Summary
  • True to Temperament: Van Gogh and French Naturalist Literature is the first book-length study of an acknowledged but neglected aspect of Van Gogh's development as an artist--his fascination with contemporary literature. Charting his reading habits from his youthful interest in the moralizing novels of English writers to the preference for Naturalist literature that characterizes his maturity, Judy Sund elucidates the intimate connection between Van Gogh's reading habits
  • And his development as a visual artist. Van Gogh considered reading to be "a matter of importance that greatly influences one's work," and though he resolutely avoided the anecdotal and illustrative in his art, his oeuvre is nonetheless marked by his literary pursuits. In this study, Sund reveals the multiple and often subtle ways in which Van Gogh used nonnarrative imagery to evoke beloved texts. Citing primary sources, she demonstrates that Van Gogh considered French
  • Literature of the late nineteenth century to be at the forefront of cultural production. Sund further argues that the works and theoretical stances of the writers whom Van Gogh most admired--Zola, Maupassant, Daudet, and the Goncourt brothers--informed his own notions of modernism, by providing a conceptual entree into the world of the Parisian avant-garde. Moreover, Van Gogh's artistic production and predilection for Naturalist prose are shown to be closely linked and
  • Mutually reinforcing. This study thus enhances our understanding of artistic correspondance in the late nineteenth century and explodes prevailing assumptions by examining the allusive, "Symbolist" dimensions of Naturalist practice
