Vincent Van Gogh - MUDEC
17 OCTOBER 2023
The exhibition was made possible thanks to the collaboration with the Kröller-Müller Museum of Otterlo, in the Netherlands, whose amazing collection of Van Gogh’s paintings and drawings is surpassed only by the collection of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Approximately 40 of the works on display come from the Dutch museum, including some amazing masterpieces, such as the studies for heads and figures for The Potato Eaters, andthe drawings of sowers and gleaners dating back to the Dutch period; (Moulin de la Galette, Self-Portrait, Interior of a Restaurant, Still Life with Plaster Statuette) the Paris years (1886-87) (Orchard Bordered by Cypresses, Seascape near Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, The Green Vineyard, Portrait of Joseph-Michel Ginoux), and the Arles period (1888-89) (Landscape with Wheat Sheaves and Rising Moon, Wheat Stack under a Cloudy Sky, Pine Trees in the Garden of the Asylum, Olive Grove with Two Olive Pickers, Tree Trunks in the Grass, The Ravine (Les Peiroulets)), painted during the year he spent in the Saint-Rémy hospital (1889-90).
The works from the Kröller-Muller Museum establish a dialogue with the first fil rouge of the exhibition, an accurate selection of original editions of art books and magazines coming from the curator’s collection and the Biblioteca Malatestiana, showcased throughout the whole exhibition.
The exhibition is curated by the art historian Francesco Poli, Mariella Guzzoni, researcher and currator of “Van Gogh: Living with Books”, which became the fil rouge for this show, and Aurora Canepari, curator of the collection of the Oriental Art Museum Edoardo Chiossone, in Genoa, and curator of the section “Van Gogh and Japonisme”.
