Product Description

Here is a stirring view into Van Gogh’s world. Written by the former Chief Curator of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam with one of America’s foremost culinary authorities, this unique cookbook/art book explores the role of the café in Van Gogh’s life. Includes more than 50 traditional recipes, ranging from hearty to refined, and 100 photographs, paintings, sketches, engravings, and letters, some never before seen in book form.


At the Auberge Ravoux, in a tiny artists' village twenty miles from Paris, Vincent Van Gogh experienced a burst of creativity, producing some seventy works in an astounding seventy days. The auberge, his last home, operates today as the Maison de Van Gogh, and little has changed in the intervening century: visitors are still treated to the comforting, delicious cuisine that he would have enjoyed in 1890. Van Gogh's Table is an intimate view into this world, as revealing as sharing poulet and pommes sautées with the artist himself: fifty recipes; a richly detailed history of this period of the artist's life; a fascinating examination of the central role of the café in French culture; and carefully selected engravings, postcards, letters, and paintings, all woven together into a singular perspective on a man and a place, during a remarkable moment in history.
