Van Gogh: The Lifetime by Brand: Random House Trade Paperbacks
Product Description
Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, who galvanized readers with their Pulitzer Prize–winning biography of Jackson Pollock, have written another tour de force—an exquisitely detailed, compellingly readable portrait of Vincent van Gogh. Working with the full cooperation of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Naifeh and Smith have accessed a wealth of previously untapped materials to bring a crucial understanding to the larger-than-life mythology of this great artist: his early struggles to find his place in the world; his intense relationship with his brother Theo; and his move to Provence, where he painted some of the best-loved works in Western art. The authors also shed new light on many unexplored aspects of Van Gogh’s inner world: his erratic and tumultuous romantic life; his bouts of depression and mental illness; and the cloudy circumstances surrounding his death at the age of thirty-seven.
 
Though countless books have been written about Van Gogh, no serious, ambitious examination of his life has been attempted in more than seventy years. Naifeh and Smith have re-created Van Gogh’s life with an astounding vividness and psychological acuity that bring a completely new and sympathetic understanding to this unique artistic genius.

Ex-UM player Vincent Smith cultivates support for Flint garden project - The Detroit News

When former Michigan running back Vincent Smith was growing up in Pahokee, Fla. Smith last played for Michigan in the 2013 Outback Bowl, which produced the highlight that seemed to be shown endlessly — South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney blasting unblocked through the UM offensive line and slamming Smith, sending his helmet... People still recognize Smith because of that play, but these days he is drawing attention for his nonprofit community cleanup and garden work that first started in his native Florida and has now moved to Michigan where he currently lives. "I'm a 21st century farmer, I've told myself," Smith said, laughing, this week. Smith and his Team Gardens project are hosting a three-hour "Flint Garden Day" on Sunday beginning at noon on a piece of land at 911 Cottage Ave. When Smith and Michigan teammate Martavious Odoms hatched the idea during their college careers to build a community garden in Pahokee, the hope was to connect athletes and fans while mentoring youth and cleaning up neighborhoods to build gardens. "It's about teamwork — that's why we call it Team Gardens," Smith said. His former teammates Justice Hayes and Thomas Rawls got him thinking about Flint, and when he visited the city, he was reminded of his hometown. "We're trying to spread the word and get people involved in the community and get them aware of what our goal is and that's to teach people about health and nutrition at a young age," Smith said. "We're trying to impact the community with a different approach. Smith wants the community to help build and harvest green spaces with the hope of removing blight and revitalizing neighborhoods, while providing fruits and vegetables for those in the community and to be sold. The Pahokee gardens have yielded two harvests. This will be the first garden with which he's been involved planting outside of Florida, and he wants to make clear he is not only enlisting those who are Michigan fans. "Michigan State has their green thumb, and we can collide on this and make this a healthy rivalry," Smith said. org , and if you're interested in donating to the Flint garden project, visit the GoFundMe page at FeedFlint.
