Vincent van Gogh was Dutch. Although, the artist lived at the end of 19-th century, his works still inspire innumerable art lovers around the world. More than 2 million people visit annually the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
Although, Van Gogh's creative life was
short, ten years only, his artistic legacy is extremely rich: about 2,000
paintings and drawings.
The word 'Meneer' ('Mister' in Dutch) in the title is a token of
our gratitude to the Netherlands Embassy in Israel for the generous
support of development of this exhibition.
While in Israeli museums you can see only three works of Vincent van Gogh, this exhibition presents you with more than 30 pivotal artist's paintings from the museums around the world. The artworks are accompanied with short texts telling you about the artist and how these paintings were created. In many cases, the texts include the comments made by Vincent himself from the letters to his brother Theo.
