Glory of Van Gogh: An Anthropology of Admiration
Nathalie Heinich (au); Paul Leduc Browne (tr). The image of the great artist as a suffering visionary is a recent invention, observes sociologist Heinich -- an invention rooted in the “canonization” of van Gogh as a cultural hero for the 20th century. She explores how & why the impoverished & mentally tormented van Gogh came to be glorified shortly after his suicide at the age of 37. Did the secular art world need a rebel-saint of its own? Heinich explores the history of efforts to celebrate van Gogh, showing how the details of his life have been constructed according to the pattern of a Christian saint’s rise to recognition. Examines the economics of the art market & the themes that make up the van Gogh myth.
