Sunny Days at the VGM


How'd they know I couldn't resist? The Van Gogh Museum Online Shop has a new "Sunflowers" themed promotion especially for summer. I'm especially excited about the new volume in the Van Gogh in Focus series, curator Louis van Tilborgh's "Van Gogh and the Sunflowers." I have two other volumes in the series (Van Gogh and His Letters, Van Gogh and Love) and found them both informative and enjoyable. These books are only available at the VGM itself or the online shop, alas, but proceeds (as with everything else there) go toward future museum acquisitions. I'm tickled to order it just in time for the last revisions on my novel! And if a pretty Sunflowers printed shawl hopped into my online cart too...well, what can I tell you? *wink*

Do you read Dutch, Sheramy? It looks like the title is in Dutch.

Wish I did, but no. All the Van Gogh in Focus books come in Dutch, English, French, and Japanese (because Vincent is HUGE in Japan) editions.

Interesting!

He'd love that he is huge in Japan. He and Theo were avid collectors of Japanese prints, and Vincent even did a few paintings after prints by Hiroshige.

He's huge in Korea too!
