A selection of the Dutch artist's finest paintings is on its way to the NGV this April
The National Gallery of Victoria’s next Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition is none other than famed Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh.
Opening on Friday April 28, Van Gogh and the Seasons will feature more than 60 works curated by international Van Gogh expert Sjraar van Heugten, former head of collections at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
Chances are, the majority of Van Gogh’s post-impressionist paintings that you know and love depict nature; think ‘Wheat Field with Cypresses’ (above) to ‘Still Life: Vase with Fourteen Sunflowers’ and ‘The Starry Night’. The artist's fascination with nature forms the basis of the theme of the exhibition, which will be presented as a journey through the four seasons. It will also explore the circle of life – birth, bloom, maturity and death – that he so often represented in his dramatic, expressive and colourful works.
Van Gogh and the Seasons will run at the NGV from Friday April 28 until Sunday July 9.
