Van Gogh. Between wheat and sky. And the soul

Vicenza is set to host the largest exhibition dedicated to the artist ever held in Italy

 

This journey will delve into the darkest corners of the soul to discover the pain and everyday struggles during the years spent in Holland, which generated the works of Van Gogh.

This is the fulcrum of the exhibition dedicated to the artist, entitled ‘Van Gogh. Between Wheat and Sky’, curated by Marco Goldin, the founder of Linea d’Ombra.

 

From 7 October 2017 to 8 April 2018, the Basilica Palladiana of Vicenza will play host to the largest monographic exhibition ever dedicated to Van Gogh, in Italy.

 

Over 120 works of art – 43 paintings and 86 sketches – from all over the world will be on display in this highly unusual retrospective on the life of the Dutch genius.

This showcase of his works will also look into the more intimate life of Vincent with some of the letters he sent, especially those addressed to his brother, Théo.

 

The masterpieces of the painter and his life in general will be elegantly combined in an innovative display, with a video lasting about one hour, which will be projected in the final hall of the exhibition.

 

Finally, there will be a large model of the madhouse of Saint-Paul-de-Mausole in Saint-Rémy, where Van Gogh stayed as a self-admitted patient from May 1889 to May 1890.
