Van Gogh in Paris, Eykyn Maclean London
Eykyn Maclean London will present Van Gogh in Paris in September 2013, a landmark exhibition exploring the years 1886 to 1888 when the artist was living and working in Paris. With a career that spanned no more than ten years in total before his premature death in 1890, Van Gogh’s two years in Paris were critical in his transition away from the dark, sombre works of his Dutch period toward the bright colours and expressive handling for which he is best known today. Works by Van Gogh illustrating these pivotal changes in style will include Self Portrait 1886, The Ramparts of Paris, 1887, A Pair of Shoes, One Upside Down, Autumn 1886, and many others. These will be shown alongside carefully researched works by the artists with whom he associated during these years – including Monet, Pissarro, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Gauguin.
