Becoming Vincent All Over Again
Friday, May 05
Popular interest in Vincent van Gogh has grown strikingly in recent decades. With the vigorous pursuit of technical and scholarly enquiry, a string of studies has confirmed the authenticity of paintings made in 1886, the year of his arrival to Paris, including Vase with Poppies at the Wadsworth Atheneum. A series of important exhibition projects are encouraging a re-appraisal of the stylistic arc of his career and his critical fortune in the 20th century, including next year’s Van Gogh in America at the Detroit Institute of Arts. The panel connects the dots between conservation science, archival work, and professional collaboration that advance our knowledge and appreciation of this most fascinating artist.
