Munch : Van Gogh
Until 17 January 2016
What are the similarities between the lives and works of the artists Edvard Munch and Vincent van Gogh? As of 25 September 2015 visitors to the Van Gogh Museum have been given the opportunity to discover this for themselves in the Munch: Van Gogh exhibition.
By presenting more than 100 works, the museum shows the artistic affinity between these two artists. And besides, the exhibition offers the unique opportunity to admire works by both artists, including masterpieces such as The Scream by Munch and Starry Night over the Rhône by Van Gogh, at one and the same location.
This is the very first time that this much attention is focussed on the similarities and differences between the lives and works of both artists.
Munch and Van Gogh are both known for their emotionally charged paintings, their unique and innovative style and their dramatic lives. Both were highly committed to changing the art of their time and they developed a personal, expressive visual idiom so as to express the universal emotions of the human condition.
When I Give, I Give Myself
Until 17 January 2016
In the When I Give, I Give Myself exhibition, 23 national and international contemporary artists and writers creatively respond to a specific excerpt from one of Vincent van Gogh's letters.
The resulting paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, letters, poems, photos and videos are the living proof that until this very day, 125 years after his death, Van Gogh remains a source of inspiration and that his ideas are still as relevant as ever.
The works are found in combination with Van Gogh's paintings, drawings and letters in the permanent collection of the Van Gogh Museum.
Easy Virtue: Prostitution in French Art, 1850-1910
19 February until 19 June 2016
This spring, the Van Gogh Museum will present the provocative Easy Virtue exhibition. Never before has the visual presentation of prostitution in 19th-century French art been focussed on so extensively.
Four fascinating themes introduce the audience to 19th-century Paris. Discover how prostitution was perceived through the eyes of Vincent van Gogh and many other famous artists of his time, as for instance, Edgar Degas, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Kees van Dongen and Pablo Picasso.
Easy Virtue: Prostitution in French Art, 1850-1910 is a collaboration between the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and Musée d’Orsay in Paris. Under the title of Splendeurs et misères, the exhibition is shown in Paris until 17 January.
On the Verge of Insanity. Van Gogh and his illness
15 July until 25 September 2016
The emphasis of his exhibition will be on those works that we associate with Van Gogh’s illness. What exactly did he suffer from and in what way did his illness have an effect on his work?
A host of different diagnoses and interpretations of his illness (by third parties and on the basis of his letters) as well as his death will be fully examined and discussed.
Daubigny, Monet, Van Gogh: Impressions of Landscape
21 October 2016 until 29 January 2017
Charles-François Daubigny (1817-1878) was in the vanguard of those who developed 19th-century French landscape painting. He not only influenced Van Gogh, but also the famous Impressionist painters, such as Monet, Pissarro and Sisley.
Gaining more insight into Daubigny and his method and vision will also create more understanding of the works of Van Gogh and the Impressionists.
