From 8 October 2022 Palazzo Bonaparte will host a major exhibition dedicated to Van Gogh. Through his most famous works – including his famous Self-portrait – the story of the most famous artist in the world will be revealed.
Born in Holland on March 30, 1853, Vincent Van Gogh was an artist of extreme sensitivity and a tormented life. His attacks of madness, his long stays in the psychiatric hospital of Saint Paul in Provence, the episode of the severed ear, as well as the epilogue of his life, which ends on July 29, 1890, at the age of seven, with a suicide: a gunshot to the chest in the Auverse fields.
Despite a life steeped in tragedy, Van Gogh paints a shocking series of Masterpieces, accompanying them with sublime writings (the famous “Letters” to his brother Theo Van Gogh), inventing a unique style that has made him the most famous in the history of art.
The exhibition in Rome, through 60 works and many biographical testimonies, reconstructs the human and artistic story of Van Gogh, to celebrate his universal greatness.
The exhibition is produced by Arthemisia and is organized in collaboration with the Kröller Müller Museum in Otterlo, which houses one of the greatest treasures of Van Gogh’s works. Tickets can be booked starting from Friday 20 May through the infoline 06.8715111 and from 30 May it will be possible to pre-purchase the ticket on ticket.it.
