4 Facsimile sketchbooks

The original sketchbooks offer an intimate insight into Van Gogh’s working method and show that in addition to being a talented painter, he was an outstanding draughtsman. The sketchbooks contain a wide selection of sketches and notes, including from the years that Van Gogh spent in Nuenen, Antwerp and Paris. They provide a greater understanding of how Van Gogh saw the world and of his development throughout his ten-year career as an artist.

This edition features facsimiles of the four surviving sketchbooks, the loose sketchbook drawings and two cahiers containing cheerful drawings that Van Gogh made for Betsy Tersteeg, the young daughter of Hermanus Tersteeg, Van Gogh’s manager at the Goupil & Cie art dealership. In order to help ensure the best possible result, a total of 25 acclaimed Dutch companies and craftspeople were involved in the creation of the facsimiles.
