Van Gogh


A study day including a lecture and visit to the current Royal Academy exhibition

A study day which coincides with “The Real Van Gogh – the Artist and his Letters” at the Royal Academy. A selection of the surviving 902 letters that he wrote will go on display beside 65 paintings and 30 drawings, including correspondence between his brother and benefactor Theo and colleague Paul Gauguin, with whom Van Gogh famously fell out, resulting in a violent row which led to the Dutchman cutting off his own ear. However, many of the letters show him to have been sensitive and reflective, giving us quite a different image from the stereotypical portrayal as an irascible and reckless genius. This is the first major Van Gogh exhibition in Britain for over 40 years and will offer us fascinating insights into the artist’s technique, philosophy and personality.
