Publisher's Description

The great Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh comes to life in a new light on the pages of this splendid volume. Through eloquent poetic meditations on Van Gogh's late paintings, Marilyn Chandler McEntyre shows how these artworks testify to divine presence, and she invites readers to find their way through form, color, and light into a new awareness of the Spirit.

Some of McEntyre's poems remind us of the sorrows in the life of this solitary artist and of his infinite longing. Some convey Van Gogh's epiphanies of joy and energy that he expressed in color. According to McEntyre, these paintings invite us to see things in a different light, and her poetry is an act of consent to that invitation, providing an intimate encounter with these great works.

Evocatively pairing art and poetry, The Color of Light is the third of McEntyre's poetry books on Dutch master painters. This volume, like the other two, moves us to reflect not only on the artist's life and faith but also on our own.
