“A Secret van Gogh" - in this edition with English and in Italian text - investigates a complex layer of mysteries and clues concealed in van Gogh's paintings and biography. New points of view on the painter’s life are introduced and a foundation is laid for the interpretation of the iconography within his work. The book deduces from the painter’s biography: a previously unexplored interpretation of the final argument with Gauguin; the critical role played by Rachel, la «jeune fille» d’Arles working in rue des Récollets; Theo’s role in quelling the scandal of the December 23rd ear amputation and Gauguin’s ensuing arrest. The author underscores his thesis though a series of details in van Gogh’s works, the painter’s own letters, and by re-visiting well known events in his life. This juxtaposing of biographical facts with the psychological origins of the works posits an exciting new thesis in "A Secret of Van Gogh: His Motif and Motives" that will be of great interest to a wide audience of readers. This iBooks Author edition provides many galleries of selected paintings and web links to van Gogh's correspondence.
