Van Gogh Up Close

Philadelphia Museum of Art
Benjamin Franklin Parkway
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Van Gogh Up Close, a major exhibition that will debut in Philadelphia, its only U.S. venue, presents some of the artist’s most daring and innovative works that have never been seen together and contributed to altering the course of modern painting. The exhibition features 45 still lifes and landscapes van Gogh made in Paris, Arles, Saint-Rémy, and Auvers that concentrate on “close-ups” of flowers, trees, open fields, forest interiors, and countryside vistas. Among significant loans from major museums and private collections in Europe, North America, and Japan are a stunning range of masterworks such as Almond Blossom, Sunflowers, Iris, Sheaves of Wheat, and Vineyard at Auvers. The exhibition also presents more than 30 comparative works including Japanese woodblock prints and European prints, drawings, and photographs by artists whose works bore intriguing correspondences with and offered inspiration for van Gogh.
