Van Gogh in Paris: New Perspectives

April 2 (Tuesday) -May 19 (Sunday)



Van Gogh has the image of being an ‘idealist, stubborn, a genius with an intense personality that burns and extinguishes like a flame.’ Was Van Gogh a genius from the beginning? The answer to this lies hidden in the 700 days of his blank Paris period. From the artworks of this Paris period for which there is no extant correspondence between the artist and his brother Theo, we can close in on the real image of Van Gogh from the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam. This is a new exhibition concerning how Van Gogh emerged as himself from the frustrations of regeneration and solitude. We can also read in the artworks an earlier glimpse of Japan and the mysterious connection he had with it.
