From October to December 1888 a pair of artists lived under one roof in the French provincial town of Arles. Paul Gauguin and Vincent Van Gogh ate, drank, talked, argued, slept and painted in one of the most intense and astonishing creative outpourings in history.

@2@Take it, make it, lose it, have it, kill it, spend it, save it, forget it, break it, set it, repeat it, keep it: time flies and time crawls. This may be your first time or your last time, or you may be stuck in a routine. How we experience time shapes our relationships, memories, dreams and ambitions. And only with time can possibility become reality.@3@@2@From the acclaimed illustrator and author of @18@Paris Versus New York@19@ comes a visual memoir, inspired by Vahram Muratyan's journeys across four continents, that all of us can relate to.

The Pre-Raphaelite Movement began in 1848, and experienced its heyday in the 1860s and 1870s. Influenced by the then little-known Keats and Blake, as well as Wordsworth, Shelley and Coleridge, Pre-Raphaelite poetry 'etherialized sensation' (in the words of Antony Harrison), and popularized the notion ofl'art pour l'art - art for art's sake. Where Victorian realist novels explored the grit and grime of the Industrial Revolution, Pre-Raphaelite poems concentrated on more abstract themes of romantic love, artistic inspiration and sexuality. Later they attracted Aesthetes and Decadents like Oscar Wilde, Aubrey Beardsley and Ernest Dowson, not to mention Gerard Manley Hopkins and W.B. Yeats.
'When Matisse dies, Chagall will be the only painter left who understands what colour really is.' Picasso said this in the 1950s, when he and Chagall were eminent neighbours living in splendour on the Cote d'Azur. But behind Chagall's role as a pioneer of modern art lay struggle, heartbreak, bitterness, lost love, exile, and the miracle of survival.
Born the son of a Russian Jewish herring merchant, Chagall fled the repressive "potato-coloured" czarist empire in 1911 to develop his genius in Paris, living alongside Modigliani and Leger in La Ruche, the artist's colony where "you either died or came out famous". Through war and revolution in Bolshevik Russia, Weimar Berlin, occupied France and 1940s New York, he gave form to his dreams, longings and memories in paintings which are among the most humane and joyful of the 20th century. Drawing on numerous interviews with the artist's family, friends, dealers, collectors, and illustrated with two hundred paintings, drawings and photographs, many previously unseen, this elegantly written biography gives for the first time a full and true account of Chagall the man and the artist - and of a life as intense, theatrical and haunting as his paintings.
Vincent van Gogh created some of the best loved - and most expensive - works of art ever made, from the early "The Potato Eaters" to his late masterpieces "Sunflowers" and "The Starry Night". This biography draws on all of his (and his family's) letters, which offer written glimpses into his thoughts and feelings.
