梵谷
文生.梵谷

(1853-1890)是一位用盡生命創作的畫家,瘋狂追求真愛及真實的 感受,沒有世俗的作做及世儈!

梵谷漂泊的一生和他的作品有著密切的關係,出門旅行通常可 以為他帶來新的靈感。

1869年至1876年,梵谷擔任美術複製商品店員時,屢屢因堅持非好 畫不賣而與許多欠缺美術修養的顧客爭論。在伯雷那琪礦區任臨時牧 師時,目睹礦工窮苦生活的梵谷,即使自己衣著襤褸,仍幫助工人家 眷撿煤。礦區工人尊敬他如上帝使者,但上級卻認為這樣的作風有辱 佈道者的尊嚴,而將他逐出教會。梵谷天使般的仁慈與天真、嫉惡如 仇的個性,使他無法適應充滿邪惡的社會生活。

住在荷蘭的時候,他畫了很多礦工的生活,厚厚地塗出陰鬱的 色彩。一八八六年,搬到弟弟所住的巴黎,並開始上班。這段時間 ,他寫了很多感人至深的信給弟弟,談自己的生活和作品。認識 了畢沙羅、希涅克、高更、貝納等人後,他的創作逐漸有了一些 改變。

在感情生上,梵谷一生亦倍受愛情的打擊。即使擁有善良的心, 他近乎醜陋的外表及倔強的性格,以及感情衝動時行為變得極為魯莽 ,使得他所追求的女性望而生畏。1883年,終於有位39歲的瑪葛娣愛 上了梵谷,卻因女方的父母堅決反對,導致瑪葛娣自盡,雖然自殺未 遂,但梵谷卻遭受社會摒棄,只得傷心地離開。

一系列反映現實生活的自畫像,為的是揭露內心不安的情緒, 用色大膽自由,恰能彰顯個性。而這些作品的特徵是,背景都以 黃、綠、藍、淡紫的筆調,綴出一股股躍動感,此外,也嘗試以 石墨、鉛筆、木炭、水彩描繪出激盪壓迫的張力。

在生活及感情的道路上走得相當坎坷,梵谷只好在繪畫上宣洩內 心的感情。因此我們可以看出他的作品特點多為熱情洋溢,筆觸 大膽強烈。

一生孤獨寂寞的梵谷,終於不堪精神上的紛亂和痛苦,飲彈自盡 ,留下豐富的畫作遺產,供後人憑弔。

Immensely learned and completely engaging, this CD-ROM is art history at its most inspired."
