Tomorrow (Friday the 13th) is the start of the big exhibition 'Van Gogh and the colors of the night', in the Van Gogh Museum.
The exhibition promises to be a blockbuster: the exhibition was also in the MoMa in New York, and was a big success there.
Van Gogh and the colours of the night is a unique exhibition of paintings by Vincent van Gogh evoking the atmosphere of the evening and night.
Van Gogh and the colours of the night is the first exhibition to be devoted to Van Gogh’s representations of the evening and night, a theme which recurs throughout his oeuvre. Famous works from international collections in the exhibition include The starry night (MoMA), Eugène Boch (Musée d’Orsay), a series of three sowers against a setting sun (of which one from the Foundation E.G. Bührle Collection) and The potato eaters (Van Gogh Museum).
