Van Gogh and Still Life: From Tradition to Innovation
Notice of the exhibition
What did Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890) learn, and what did he pass on? This exhibition will place Van Gogh within the development of still life painting in Europe, from the 17th-century Netherlands to the start of the 20th century, and explore what Van Gogh learned from his predecessors, how this was reflected in his own works, and how he influenced future generations of artists. The exhibition will also include an area that focuses on ‘Sunflowers’, introducing works by Van Gogh and other artists that depict sunflowers and investigating why they painted this subject.
