La mirada de Vincent

(SOLD OUT EDITION)

ARTIKA, in collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum, pays tribute to the great post-impressionist painter, in commemoration of the 125th anniversary of his death, with an exclusive work that brings us closer to the most intimate part of the great artist, his drawings.

A unique edition to appreciate the style, expression and strokes of the Dutch painter, which reproduces the complete collection of the sketchbooks kept at the Van Gogh Museum, who have endorsed this limited and numbered work of 2,998 copies.

The complete collection of sketchbooks consists of four artist’s sketchbooks, which show sketches made by the artist during his life as a painter, and three others, from the early period, which above all have a didactic value.

Vincent's Gaze also includes a Study Book, in which specialists on the artist carry out different studies and analyses on his life and work, essential for understanding one of the best known and most admired painters of contemporary art.»

PRODUCTION PROCESS

Different reprographic processes have been used in the printing of the notebooks to achieve the best result and color calibration.

The notebooks have been lined and sewn by hand, recreating all the details of the originals, including the die-cutting of the pages.

Cardboard covers with cloth, linen or leather spine are some of the materials selected for the faithful reproduction of the notebooks.

The 17 plates reproduced in facsimile have been die-cut according to the originals and glued to a support with three dots of glue.

The cover of the Study book, lined with dyed cloth, reproduces a silkscreen print of one of the sketches prior to the sunflower painting.

Due to its dimensions, the study book has been hand-sewn with cotton threads and the help of an old wooden support.

The case reproduces on white canvas a detail of The Sunflowers, highlighting the intensity and tonality of the original painting.

The case consists of two trays to protect the notebooks and a compartment to keep the plates and the notarial act.

The solid beech wood display case consists of a display frame with a methacrylate cover and a lectern, the base on which the frame rests.

The design of the display frame allows it to be placed on the lectern, on a flat surface or hung on the wall.

The display frame is made of nylon threads that are used to hold the notebooks and display them open without damaging them.

The lectern has been adapted with a space for storing the notebook case and displaying the study book closed or open.

Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh

(1853-1890) The Dutch painter became, without knowing it, one of the main exponents of post-impressionism. Essentially self-taught, throughout his career he produced around 900 works, creating almost compulsively.

However, the quality of his work was not recognized until after his death, becoming, at present, one of the great masters of art history. His most intimate vision is captured in his sketchbooks and letters that he sent to his brother Théo, a central figure in Vincent’s life.
