內容簡介

藝術史羅生門──梵谷割耳事件新事證

一位長居在法國的業餘歷史學家Bernadette Murphy找到了藝術史上非常著名的「梵谷割耳」事件的新事證,於日前在荷蘭阿姆斯特丹的梵谷博物館對外公布。Murphy在UC Berkley的檔案局裡找到了梵谷自殘當時在醫院治療梵谷的醫師筆記,說明當時梵谷的整隻左耳都被割下,而非僅割下耳垂。

Murphy的新書Van Gogh’s Ear: The True Story同步出版,BBC根據本書拍攝之紀錄片將於2016年底推出。

割耳事件是梵谷一生最為人所知但也最無法被理解的一件事,傳記作家與歷史學者在百年前意圖尋找真相,卻挖掘出比答案還多的疑問。為什麼一個正值創作顛峰的藝術家會做出如此殘酷的行為?這個可怕禮物的神祕受贈者”Rachel”到底是個什麼樣的女人?他用什麼樣的刀子割下部分還是整個耳朵?

作者Murphy在本書中首次揭露長期被誤解的事件,排除數十年來的迷思,讓我們一瞥正值人生關卡、飽受精神折磨卻又大放異彩的藝術家。Murphy如偵探般從歐洲到美國又回到歐洲,從各大有梵谷館藏的博物館到幾乎為人所遺忘的檔案資料中,交織出作者本身精彩的探尋之旅以及敘述梵谷在阿爾(Arles)的生活。畫家在此創作出了最好的作品,那個有著仕女、妓女、咖啡店老闆、警察、牧羊人與波希米亞藝術家的世界。我們遇見了梵谷的弟弟西奧、同儕高更、還有畫家作品中的許多當地人士,部分已由作者首次指認出來。Murphy首次揭露了謎樣的”Rachel”,並且利用這個發現做出在梵谷內心到底發生了什麼事,導致他把這神秘的禮物送到Rachel家門口的大膽假設。

本書不但重啟藝術史上最冷血的其中一個案例,它也成為一部精采的偵探作品。書中除了收錄梵谷畫作,還有許多當時的攝影,及梵谷本人年輕時的照片。是喜愛梵谷與藝術史的人絕不能錯過的一本書。

The best-known and most sensational event in Vincent van Gogh’s life is also the least understood. For more than a century, biographers and historians seeking definitive facts about what happened on a December night in Arles have unearthed more questions than answers. Why would an artist at the height of his powers commit such a brutal act? Who was the mysterious “Rachel” to whom he presented his macabre gift? Did he use a razor or a knife? Was it just a segment―or did Van Gogh really lop off his entire ear?

In Van Gogh’s Ear, Bernadette Murphy reveals, for the first time, the true story of this long-misunderstood incident, sweeping away decades of myth and giving us a glimpse of a troubled but brilliant artist at his breaking point. Murphy’s detective work takes her from Europe to the United States and back, from the holdings of major museums to the moldering contents of forgotten archives. She braids together her own thrilling journey of discovery with a narrative of Van Gogh’s life in Arles, the sleepy Provençal town where he created his finest work, and vividly reconstructs the world in which he moved―the madams and prostitutes, café patrons and police inspectors, shepherds and bohemian artists. We encounter Van Gogh’s brother and benefactor Theo, his guest and fellow painter Paul Gauguin, and many local subjects of Van Gogh’s paintings, some of whom Murphy identifies for the first time. Strikingly, Murphy uncovers previously unknown information about “Rachel”―and uses it to propose a bold new hypothesis about what was occurring in Van Gogh’s heart and mind as he made a mysterious delivery to her doorstep.

As it reopens one of art history’s most famous cold cases, Van Gogh’s Ear becomes a fascinating work of detection. It is also a study of a painter creating his most iconic and revolutionary work, pushing himself ever closer to greatness even as he edged toward madness―and one fateful sweep of the blade that would resonate through the ages.
