Vincent Van Gogh is one of the most famous painters who has ever lived. His paintings are extremely popular and this exhibition in the National Gallery in London is a once-in-a-century experience, meaning that you will have to wait a very long time before you get a similar chance to see so beautiful Van Gogh paintings in the same place again.
If you come to this exhibition you can see paintings such as ‘Starry Night over the Rhône’ (1888, Musée d’Orsay), ‘The Yellow House’ (1888, Van Gogh Museum), and also paintings normally in the National Gallery such as ‘Sunflowers’ (1888) and ‘Van Gogh’s Chair’ (1889).
If you look at the years in which all these paintings were made, you will see that they are from the period in which Van Gogh resided in France. During those years, Van Gogh was inspired by poets, writers, and artists, and his paintings turned into something like a symphony of colors and texture. The exhibition deals with the time Van Gogh spent in Arles and Saint-Rémy and looks at several of his creations from this period.
