The Glory of Van Gogh: An Anthropology of Admiration

by

Sociologist Nathalie Heinich examines how and why impoverished and mentally tormented artist Vincent van Gogh came to be glorified shortly after his suicide at the age of 37. 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.
