Van Gogh Repetitions, Starts Oct 12th
This exhibition takes a fresh look at the artistic process of Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890). While recognized for the intensity and speed with which he often produced paintings during his 10 year career, less well known is the deliberate and methodical process he also brought to many of the same subjects. Approximately 30 paintings, alongside related drawings and technical photographs, go beneath the surface of some of the artist’s most renowned works to examine the ways in which he created nearly identical compositions.
