On October 20 the long awaited blockbuster exhibit, Becoming Van Gogh opened at the Denver Art Museum. This exhibit has been 9 years in the making and includes 70 Van Gogh drawings and paintings as well as 20 works by artists who influenced Van Gogh's work. These works come from 60 collections around the world.
In the Art Museum's own words, this is "an indepth exploration of Vincent Van Gogh's unconventional path to becoming one of the world's most recognizable artists. Becoming Van Gogh examines critical steps in his artistic evolution through more than 70 paintings and drawings by Van Gogh along with works by artists to whom he responded such as Henri Toulouse-Lautrec and Camille Pissarro..."
This exhibit will not travel. Denver is its only venue.
Curator Timothy Standring and his colleague at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam have truly gathered the best of the best from museums and private collections around the world. Come hear about the art visiting Denver as well as an inside look at the work it took to gather this remarkable collection in Denver.
