Palazzo Bonaparte, emblem of the Baroque era, hosts the exhibition dedicated to Vincent Van Gogh, one of the most eagerly awaited artistic events in Rome.
The exhibition dedicated to the Dutch painter, thanks to the support of Acea and the valuable collaboration with the Kröller-Müller Museum of Otterlo in the Netherlands, hosts the most famous works by Vincent Van Gogh and reconstructs the personal and artistic events of the artist's life, celebrating his greatness.
A unique opportunity to admire, 170 years after his birth, the many biographical accounts and 60 paintings by Vincent Van Gogh, including masterpieces such as the Self-Portrait, The Sower, The Potato Eaters, Tree Trunks in the Grass, Interior of a Restaurant, Willows at Sunset, The Lover (Portrait of Lieutenant Milliet), Girl in the Woods, Wheat Field under Cloudy Skies, Sheaves and some famous still lifes.
The works on display retrace the main stages of the artist’s life, from his Dutch to his Parisian sojourn, through Arles to St. Remy and Auvers-Sur-Oise. Each canvas stands out for its exploration of colour and choice of subjects while maintaining a common thread throughout the works: an intense relationship with the truth of the world that is fully expressed in the famous Self-Portrait, where the rapid strokes of the brush signify a highly complex and tumultuous idea of self.
Vincent Van Gogh was born on 30 March 1853 in the Netherlands, and in his short life, which ended at the age of 37, he produced a considerable number of works with an unmistakable style that brought about a profound revolution in European artistic culture, leaving his name among the most famous painters of all epochs.
Van Gogh’s style, difficult to associate with an artistic movement or current, given his profoundly solitary and rebellious approach, could be described as post-impressionist.
From still lifes to portraits of workers and peasants intent on hard work, to city views and self-portraits, the artist allowed himself to be influenced by the atmospheres of the places where he lived, merging reality and emotions in his works.
