Sequel to the acclaimed book and exhibition Van Gogh in Arles, Pickvance's Van Gogh in Saint-Rémy and Auvers is the first book devoted to the artist's final months in an asylum and his death in Auvers, near Paris, in 1890. 70 paintings and 20 drawings from this period have been selected for reproduction; they include nature studies and copies after 19th-century masters which formed the groundwork for a dozen large landscapes of Auvers.
