This exhibition will give a broad view on the people who played an important part in Van Gogh’s life and work. His complex relationships with family, friends and fellow artists, students and models from Brabant to the south of France were often strong and long-lasting, but sometimes ended in estrangement.
The exhibition includes prominent pieces from the Netherlands and abroad, some of which have never been seen in this country before and never together in one exhibition. The exhibition combines portraits that Van Gogh made of his friends and fellow artists, such as Gauguin and Signac, with works by those same artists but also with drawings, letters, pictures and poetry.
A surprising new perspective on one of the world’s greatest artists.
