Beyond the sunflowers, irises and portrait of Doctor Gachet, there is the man Van Gogh, signified by his fragility and talent. From his birth in 1853 to his death in 1890, the Post-Impressionist Van Gogh shaped 19th-century concepts of painting over the course of several years with his creativity and technique. He became a forerunner of the Expressionists, the Fauves and modern art. Today, however, Van Gogh remains the symbol of a painter tortured by illness, by others and, especially, by himself.
Come explore Post-Impressionism with a beautiful collection of paintings from this creative genius. The vibrant colours and whimsical brushstrokes within the paintings provide insight into the volatile nature of Van Gogh’s state of mind.
