INFORMATION

STILL LIFE WITH BIBLE BY VINCENT VAN GOGH

Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890), Nuenen, October 1885

Original: oil on canvas, 78.5 x 65.7 cm bxh

The bulky Bible belonged to Van Gogh's father, who was a minister. He had died shortly before this painting was created. Vincent placed his own copy of Emile Zola's La joie de vivre next to the Bible. That book was a kind of 'bible' of modern life. The books symbolise the different views on life of father and son.

Vincent described this work to Theo as 'a still life of an open, that is, an off-white, leather-bound Bible, against a black background with a yellow-brown foreground, with a note of lemon yellow'. By this he meant to say that the colour black could work well. The brothers had already had many discussions about this. Theo thought Vincent's paintings were too dark and sombre. He encouraged him to use bright, light tints, just like the Impressionists.

This masterpiece by Vincent van Gogh can be seen in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Read more about the life and work of Vincent van Gogh on his painter page.
