A Van Gogh Exhibition
The Ark, a Danish Museum for Modern Art had an exhibition on some of Van Gogh’s most beautiful art from his final two years. He never experienced financial or social success in his lifetime but seemed to live when he was able to express the beauty of nature in his paintings. To be able to get hold of paint and canvasses was more important to him than food and when Vincent van Gogh died his brother, Theodore passed away within six months. They were so close, and Theodore had helped him in any way possible.
Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) wanted to serve God and his fellow humans beings with his art.
All the paintings at the exhibition came from the Dutch Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo near Arnheim. It’s worth a visit both because of the museum and the allied airmen cemeteries and the museums on the fateful, Operation Market Garden in September 1944.
Whenever our museums for modern art have special exhibitions of artists from the age of the impressionism visitors, seem to flock to see the paintings. Henry, my husband, has a post on Vincent van Gogh as a visit at the Krüller-Müller Museum sparked his interest in art.
