This volume combines Vincent van Gogh's love for painting and the French language in a work that can entertain and educate parents and children alike. Even-sided pages have the original painting, plus a sentence in each language describing the scene. On the odd-sided pages, thumbnails of the work can be found with hues separated. For instance, "Starry Night" has three thumbnails: yellow for the stars, blue for the sky, and green for the foliage. The selection of paintings includes "Starry Night", "Bedroom in Arles", "The Night Café", and more. Most of the paintings were done during Vincent's years in France, a period that gave us the spellbinding style for which he is known to this day. Color, language, and imagination come together in "Vincent".
