Know Before You Go – Van Gogh’s Poets and Lovers Exhibition

6 November @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm


In the exhibition Van Gogh’s Poets and Lovers put on by The National Gallery to celebrate its 200th birthday, you will be able to see the most loved of Van Gogh’s paintings from across the globe.
Many of these are rarely seen in public and will be paired together with his extraordinary drawings.
Over just two years in the south of France, Van Gogh revolutionised his style in a symphony of poetic colour and texture. He was inspired by poets, writers and artists.
Jo Rhymer will look at this time in Arles and Saint-Rémy as a decisive period in his career. His desire to tell stories produced a landscape of poetic imagination and romantic love on an ambitious scale.
You will be able to see up-close his ‘Starry Night over the Rhône’ (1888, Musée d’Orsay) and ‘The Yellow House’ (1888, Van Gogh Museum), as well as the National Galleries’ own ‘Sunflowers’ (1888) and ‘Van Gogh’s Chair’ (1889), among many others.
The exhibition at The National Gallery runs from14 September 2024 until 19 January 2025
