Note: For a complete list of all Van Gogh paintings in this exhibition click here.
Vincent van Gogh - Up Close will be the first major exhibition of Van Gogh's works in Canada in more than twenty years. The National Gallery in Ottawa says that the exhibition will "break new ground in exploring the artist’s representation of nature in particular his innovative use of the close-up view." Highlights of the Vincent van Gogh – Up Close special collection include Iris, Undergrowth with Two Figures, and Blossoming Almond Tree along with more than 40 other paintings and drawings.
Assistant curator Dr. Anabelle Kienle describes this exciting exhibition as "always a tough endeavour because these are paintings that are rarely lent, that are very much liked by the public, so museums don’t part with them very easily.”
