“The Origins of Van Gogh - The Hague School and Modern Naturalist Painting”
This event has ended.
The great painter Vincent Van Gogh possessed a vibrant brooding style of work of singular uniqueness yet the roots of his artistic practice may be traced back to the Hague School, a group of Dutch artists pursuing a particular form of realism in the second half of 19th century. Under the influence of the French Barbizon School they reappraised the work of the Dutch golden age of painting of the 17th century, with a particular interest in those who worked amongst nature such as land laborers and fisher folk, filling outdoor scenes with a light of transparent delicacy. This exhibition draws principally upon the collection of the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and the Kröller-Müller Museum to present key works from the Hague School as well as the earlier Barbizon School and highlighting their impact upon van Gogh and the early work of Piet Mondrian.
