Displaying 40 of the prolific artist’s pieces, this exhibition is a great intorduction to the world of Van Gogh. Divided into two sections, it also features 30 works by artists who inspired him. The first section focuses on his time spent in The Hague—the capital of the European art world at the time. Moving from sketches to full oil works, his technique grew during his two years in the city. The second section will focus on Impressionism and his visit to Paris in 1886 during the 8th Impressionist Exhibition where he viewed works by the likes of Pissarro, Degas and Gauguin.
Please note that while Senior and Junior High School students must pay to enter, the exhibition is free for those in elementary school and below. The event stays open until 8pm on Friday and Saturdays but last entry is permitted half an hour before closing on all nights.
