23 January-18 April 2010. Personal correspondence penned by Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) is the focus of a landmark exhibition at London's Royal Academy of Arts. The traumatic and tragically short life of Van Gogh has been well documented over the years. This exhibition allows the public to glimpse further into the artist's world, a world which, according to the ode Starry Night, was 'never meant for one as beautiful as you'. Accompanying the fragile and rare letters are 65 paintings and 30 drawings which express the principle themes found in his correspondence.
Sun-Thurs: 10.00-18.00 Fri: 10.00-22.00 Sat: 10.00-21.00
